image of Yearbook of the United Nations 1991

The principal reference work of the United Nations providing a comprehensive, one-volume account of the Organization’s work along with information on the work of each specialized agency in the United Nations’ family.




The year 1991 saw the definitive end of the cold war and of the bipolar era. Political energies previously held captive to the super-Power struggle were released; new States were born as people recovered their freedom; major steps forward helped to reduce the threat of nuclear war. A new spirit of hopefulness and a belief in the relevance of common action began to take shape. But it also emerged that the transition to a new pattern of international relations would be neither easy nor risk-free.
