The United Nations: A Very Short IntroductionAfter seven decades of existence has the UN become obsolete? Is it ripe for retirement?

In the second decade of the twenty-first century the UN remains an indispensable organization that continues to save lives and improve the world as its founders hoped. Since its original publication in 2008, this 2nd edition includes more recent examples of the UN Security Council in action and peacekeeping efforts while exploring its most recent successes and failures.

Langacker's 2008 Oup book Cognitive Grammar is the authoritative introduction to Cg. But for an introduction it's rather long-584 pages, divided into four sections, two of which are truly introductory and two of which offer a more detailed methodology for researchers.
