Book Description United States Institute of Peace Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The United Nations wrestles daily with questions of peace and security, sustainable development, human rights, the rule of law, good governance, and humanitarian assistance. But at root, the UN s work is about mobilizing efforts to serve humanity. Kofi Annan, the UN s seventh secretary general, recognized a role in these efforts beyond that of diplomats and peacekeepers. He engaged not only the governments of the UN s 193 member states but also academics, artists, and other opinion shapers, aware of their enormous potential as advocates and valued partners in achieving the goals of the UN. As part of this initiative, in 2002 he established the Secretary-General s Lecture Series. The Brilliant Art of Peace presents lectures delivered by seventeen of the world s most eminent thinkers, including several Nobel laureates, during Annan s tenure. The lectures challenge prevailing thinking on important issues such as globalization, human rights, identity, religion, science and technology, economics, the humanities, language, music, and the United Nations. The reader will find humor, moral rigor, and wit in this thought-provoking and timeless collection. A must-have for any reader interested in the human condition.
