Part 1 The stage and the actors: the international community's most representative forum, a universal organization, the rules of the game, regarding majorities and minorities; a half-century of debates, an ever-heavier agenda, consistency and contradiction, the difficult questions, the fundamental issues, the organization's functioning.
Part 2 Voting patterns: the resolutions and the votes, an ocean of resolutions, the vetoes in the security council, triple, double and single rejections; coincidences and discrepancies, the tools of analysis, general trends, 1946-1996, some signposts, the five stages, the countours of a new agenda.
