The Charter of the United Nations was signed in 1945 by 51 countries representing all continents, paving the way for the creation of the United Nations on 24 October 1945. The Statute of the International Court of Justice forms part of the Charter. The aim of the Charter is to save humanity from war; to reaffirm human rights and the dignity and worth of the human person; to proclaim the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small; and to promote the prosperity of all humankind. The Charter is the foundation of international peace and security.
Fairly self-explanatory I'd suspect if you're buying this then you already know what you're getting, as it's available for free to examine in various places, since it is a legal governing document of an organisation. That being said, it's formatted well for the Kindle, and at this price I thought it was pretty neat to have my own copy of it, which helps when I'm doing work in the library. The advantage of using a digital (kindle or computer) copy over a paper one is fairly obvious: no looking through glossaries or shuffling through pages for a quote, just use the search feature.
Model United Nations Essential I purchased these as prizes for an MUN conference I assisted in organising, and they were very well received. The Charters are pocket sized and come with a more classic cover than advertised in a light blue, though the content is naturally the same.
Good book It fits right in my coat pocket. Good quality paper
