Hammarskjoldby Brian Urquhart
As the 1990s place greater demands on the UN,
“A comprehensive political analysis of Dag Hammarskjold’s seven years [1952-1961] as the U.N.’s Secretary-General. . . . Follows Hammarskjold through every major crisis of his day: McCarthyism, the aftermath of Korea, Suez, Hungary, Lebanon, Algeria, the Congo.” Friedel Ungeheuer, Time
As the 1990s place greater demands on the UN, this inspiring biography shows how Hammarskjold perfected the active but quiet diplomacy that proved successful in a series of seemingly hopeless situations, from the Suez Crisis to Indochina, and how he stood up for principle against the greatest powers.
