Course Description


Local Author – Book Talk


More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that, my friends, is why we have the United Nations. - Kofi Annan

Challenging the Misconceptions of the United Nations seeks to alter the negative narrative surrounding the United Nations. Not only does the author address present-day issues, but he paints a picture of the post-World War II time-period when delegates at a San Francisco conference came together to form what we now call the United Nations. While looking into the past progress the UN has made, Curtin examines the current stigma against it and how its dismantlement, as some in the current US political climate would like to see, could dramatically affect the welfare of millions worldwide.

Michael C. Curtin, M.A., formerly a writer and editor to the United Nations Association of the United States of America, Northern New Jersey Chapter, is Political Science adjunct professor at Brookdale Community College.  He also teaches International Relations at Seton Hall University School of Diplomacy & International Relations, and a course covering the United Nations at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
