This study of the Cornnonwealth of Nations at the United Nations is based primarily on the documentary record of the United Nations: the verbatim and summary records of the sessions of the General Assembly, the Security Council, and other branches of the organization. The material on the Commonwealth is taken from Commonwealth legislation, from information supplied by various governments and embassies, and from secondary sources. The "New York Times" was of great use, especially for its reporting of press conferences and the coverage of wars and revolutions. In organization the two international groups are dissimilar. The United Nations has a fixed table of organization and of function. It has a permanent executive and a large bureaucracy. The Commonwealth lacks any such fixed structure, being an expandable, and also contractable, association of states. In the Commonwealth, unlike the United Nations, decisions are not necessarily reached, and each Commonwealth nation acts as it sees fit [TRUNCATED]
