"A lively, informative, frank, and indispensable guide to all
that's invaluable about the UN -- and what needs to be fixed as
well." --John Feffer, Director, Foreign Policy in Focus, Institute
for Policy Studies; author, Splinterlands
"UNTold continues Ian's remarkable work in supporting this invaluable institution while questioning its delivery--and the hypocrisy of so many member states whose adherence and support for international law and human rights is so often compromised." --Bianca Jagger, Founder and Executive President, Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation; Member of the Executive Director's Leadership Council, Amnesty International USA
"UNtold is a much needed exploration of the United Nations that neither mythologizes the world body nor condemns it out of hand. For those who want a critical assessment, with humor, of the UN, UNtold is a book they must read." --Jody Williams, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate (1997); Chair, Nobel Women's Initiative
"UNtold is a delightfully digestible history about the most important international intergovernmental agency which is dedicated to maintaining global peace and order . . . . I trust that Williams' passionate new book will inspire more people to view the UN as more than a simply a tourist destination." --Cheryl Wills, author and anchor, NY1 News
