The United Nations released the latest edition of its annual Yearbook, which for the first time is also being made available in digital format for users of e-book readers such as the Kindle, iPad and Nook.
The 61st volume of the Yearbook details all the activities of the UN for the year 2007, the year when Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon took office. The volume includes the full texts of all major resolutions and decisions of the General Assembly, the Security Council, and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It is divided into 33 chapters covering issues ranging from political and security questions to human rights and budgetary questions. The big issues that year included Security Council’s authorization of a joint UN-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur.
