This publication's lead article features the United Nations' (UN) 50th anniversary, examining how effective the UN has been since it superceded the League of Nations, how the UN has grown, and how well it has supported peacekeeping operations and humanitarian policies in the world. Other topics for discussion included in this volume are: nuclear proliferation; Russia and its neighbors; The Middle East; global finance; China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and U.S. challenges toward them; an end to open doors in immigration; and promoting democracy. Opinion ballots covering the eight different topics are presented along with the results of 35,003 opinion ballots received by the Foreign Policy Association as of June 30, 1994. An index to Great Decisions topics from 1984 through 1994 is also included.
