9781484806197: The United Nations' Top Job: A Close Look at the Work of Eight Secretaries General

Despite limited legal power, the job of the United Nations secretary-general has evolved into that of an often-effective global leader and mediator. When the Security Council is blocked - and sometimes even when it isn't - the UN's top official has played a key role in resolving international disputes. This book looks at the varied ways that the eight secretaries-general -- from risk-takers to cautious conservatives - have used their position to pursue the common goal of a more peaceful world.

Review:

“An epic book - accurate, interesting, and ... a reliable historical account,” Sir Brian Urquhart, former UN Undersecretary-General

“I am impressed with the thoroughness of the research, interviews, and analysis. I am sure that this book will become a necessary part of the libraries and reading material of...anyone involved in some way in international affairs.” Stephen Schlesinger, author of Act of Creation

“Comprehensive....I do not know of any other book that brings all of the Secretaries-General together,” James Sutterlin, former Director of the Office of UN Secretary General and Distinguished Fellow at Yale University

“I hope the book gets the wide attention it deserves...,” Dr. Leon Gordenker, Professor Emeritus of Politics, Princeton University
