Item description for Votes in the U. N. General Assembly (Nijhoff Law Specials, 35.) by Miguel Marinbosch...
Fifty years after its founding, the United Nations is undergoing a process of renewal. As the principal international players seek to define a new world order, they are also trying to transform the UN. But the UN is largely their creation and its shortcomings can be traced to their own attitude towards the Organization. Votes in the UN General Assembly describes the workings of the international community's most representative forum over the past five decades. It chronicles the behavior of States through their participation in the debates on, and the search for solutions to, the crucial problems facing humanity. The book also offers the first detailed analysis of how countries vote in the Assembly. This ground-breaking study will serve to understand better the UN's past as the organization looks to the future.

UN Data Gold Mine Jun 3, 2004
If you are looking for data on UN voting practices, this is the book for you! As UN voting records themselves range from nonexistent to borderline incomprehensible, this is the best record of UN voting over the past 50 years I have found. It includes a list of negative GA votes by nation, an analysis of votes by topic and region, and a numerical "Coincidence Index" metric for nation-to-nation diplomatic alignment.
The amount of work that has gone into compiling this tome is monumental, including having reviewed the record of debate on many of the thousands of resolutions, in order to determine who in fact voted against them.
