This is the first volume of a unique collection which brings together for the first time the texts of all the resolutions relevant to the Palestine question and the Arab-Israeli conflict from 1947 through 1998. These include not only the Security Council and General Assembly resolutions, but also those of all the subsidiary organizations and specialized agencies that have dealt with the various manifestations of these issues.

The volumes are designed for easy use. Each includes a subject guide and a chronological listing of the resolutions by agency of issue. A cumulative index follows Volume III; Volumes IV and V contain their own index. In addition to the voting lists that follow each resolution, all five volumes include as appendices Security Council and General Assembly voting tables, enabling the reader to trace votes for any given resolution as well as voting patterns over the years of individual member states.

The United Nations Resolutions collection is an authoritative reference work that should prove invaluable to UN delegates, diplomats, academics and foreign offices all over the world.
