Publisher's description: The book chronicles the completion of the restoration of the entire UN building complex--a mid-century masterpiece that was decaying and is now resplendent, appropriate to the UN's important role in the twenty-first century. Emerging out of its consideration of the UN buildings, the book explores the symbolism of these structures and the ongoing UN mission to promote peace, charity, and respect for all peoples throughout the world.
