Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Margaret Doxey presents here a review of the Commonwealth Secretariat's organization, resources and performance together with an exploration of the role of the Secretary-General and a discussion of the problems of financial stringency and political strain over South Africa. The Commonwealth is one of many international institutions in which governments grapple with common political, economic and social problems. Since 1965 it has had its own secretariat and secretary-general and as central features of the association they are the specific focus of this study. The Commonwealth Secretariat is small in terms of personnel and budget but plays a significant role in promoting co-operation and development in a wide range of functional areas and both Secretaries-General have brought a political dimension to its work. The author has tried to bring the Commonwealth as a whole into sharper profile and has directed the work towards general readers as well as to specialists in international organizations.
