a. The set generallySince the publication of its first edition in 1950, the Annual Review of United Nations Affairs has stood as the authoritative resource for scholars, students, and practitioners researching the latest developments of that august body. From the insightful introduction, prepared each year by adistinguished expert on UN affairs, to the full-text presentation of reports and resolutions and the helpful subject index, ARUNA provides a practical tour of each year''s U.N. actions and debates. The expert selection of documents by Joachim Muller and Karl Sauvant and the topic-based organizationof those documents make any researcher''s task much easier than the vast searching, sorting, and pruning required by the U.N.''s website. The series'' topic-based organization of the materials and subject index lend invaluable guidance to all researchers.ARUNA presents comprehensive documentation of the work of the UN on an annual basis, starting in September of each year with the beginning of the regular sessions of the General Assembly. Coverage of the UN''s key organs is provided, including the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economicand Social Council (ECOSOC), the International Court of Justice, and the UN Secretariat. In addition, selected reports of intergovernmental bodies and expert groups are included. Solely official UN documentation is used. ARUNA occupies a special place in the publications on the work of the UN, as itallows readers to obtain an overview of the principal developments in its key organs. This makes it an important reference source for policy-makers and academic researchers.b. The 2009-2010 volumesThis year''s edition continues to focus on the world financial crisis and the reaction of the United Nations and the international financial system to that crisis. The Overview to this year''s edition, written by Joachim Muller and Karl Sauvant, examines the changing role of the United Nations andexplores ways in which the management of the financial crisis has impacted that role.The Introduction to this year''s edition also examines the effects of this crisis; this Introduction is drawn from the "Report of the Commission of Experts of the President of the United Nations General Assembly on Reforms of the International Monetary and Financial System," as well as a slightlyedited version of a Preface to that report written by Professor Joseph E. Stiglitz. The Introduction discusses the findings of the Commission and proposes the creation of a new institution, a Global Economic Coordination Council, which would be supported by an International Panel of Experts with ageographically diverse membership that would represent the interests of emerging and developing countries as well as those of developed countries.Dr. Joseph E. Stiglitz, who served as Chairman of the Commission and wrote the Preface to the Commission''s Report, holds joint professorships at Columbia University''s Economics Department and its Business School. He is also Co-founder and Co-President of the Initiative for Policy Dialogue. From 1997to 2000 he was the World Bank''s Senior Vice President for Development Economics and Chief Economist. From 1995 to 1997 he served as Chairman of the U.S. Council of Economic Advisers and as a member of President Clinton''s cabinet. From 1993 to 1995 he was a member of the Council of Economic Advisers.He was previously a professor of economics at Stanford, Princeton, Yale, and All Souls College. Dr. Stiglitz is also a leading scholar of the economics of the public sector and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2001 in addition to the American Economic Association''s biennial John BatesClark Award in 1979. His recent publications include Freefall: America, Free Markets, and the Sinking of the World Economy (2010), Making Globalization Work (2006), Fair Trade for All (2005), and Globalization and its Discontents (2002).The 2009-2010 volumes of ARUNA therefore also devote considerable attention to the financial crisis as well as other international crises. Among the documents in the 2009-2010 volumes are the complete General Assembly resolutions, as well as the Report and Resolutions of the Security Council and theEconomic and Social Council (ECOSOC). Annual Reports of note include reports of the United Nations Children''s Fund (UNICEF), the UN Development Programme and UN Population Fund, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the UN Relief and Works Agency forPalestine Refugees in the Near East, and the World Food Programme. Mr. Muller and Dr. Sauvant have also selected progress reports on key peacekeeping, peace-building, and political missions, including those for Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti, Iraq, the Middle East, Sudan,and West Africa.c.

This is the 33rd report on senior salaries from the Review Body on Senior Salaries. Following the Coalition Government's announcement to tackle the budget deficit, a two-year pay freeze for all public sector workers paid more than £21,000 was put in place. This Review therefore makes no general recommendations for pay increases for the remit groups normally covered by this review, which include senior civil service, military officers and certain senior managers in the NHS. The Review Body though was already engaged in a major review of the judicial pay structure, although implementation of these recommendations for the judiciary may be affected by the overall pay freeze. The Review has set out 10 recommendations, including: that for senior officers in the armed forces the Ministry of Defence should review the performance management and pay system to define the objectives of performance-related pay and whether the existing system can be improved. The other recommendations look at the judiciary. The publication is divided into five chapters, with nine appendices

The Leader in Resources for Training & HR Professionals for the Past Four Decades Organizations that thrive in today's competitive marketplace are those that make a firm commitment to training and development. And successful trainers stay at the top of their profession by accessing the most recent and important information, tools, and resources in the field. The 2011 Pfeiffer Training Annual offers a hands-on guide to the latest thinking and recent approaches to training and development. This year's Annual presents a "organizational dynamics" theme. The contributors address the many factors that affect how well the people and process react when brought together and how they function as a singular entity to accomplish a task. The Annual is divided into four sections: Experiential Learning Activities (ELAs); Editor's Choice; Inventories, Questionnaires, and Surveys; and Articles and Discussion Resources. The fourth section, Editor's Choice, includes cutting edge material to help trainers stay on top of the key trends in the field. ELAs are the mainstay of the Annual. The activities are presented as complete and ready-to-use training designs. You'll find ELAs from top training leaders: Kris Downing, Joanne Sujansky and Jan Ferri-Reed. The instrument section introduces reliable survey and assessment tools for gathering and sharing data on aspects of change and leadership best practices. The articles section presents the best current thinking about training. Use these for your own professional development or as a lecture resource within your trainings. Must-haves in this section include articles by Leonard D. Goodstein and Eric P. Prien as well as Prakash K. Nair and Toby M. Egan that address the organizational dynamics theme. The depth and breadth of available resources—new content is added to the Annual each year—ensures a steady stream of contemporary knowledge and tools. Use the Annual to keep on top of developments within the training and HR profession, dip into the content for an activity or instrument that targets a specific performance problem, combine activities to create an entire development program, or learn how others in the profession are tackling the ever-increasing challenges of building and developing a capable and productive workforce.
