Introduction Chapter 1. The United Nations *

About the Author

Kofi A. Annan was the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations, serving two terms from January 1, 1997, to December 31, 2006, and was the first to emerge from the ranks of UN staff. In 2001 Kofi Annan and the United Nations were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, with the citation praising his leadership for "bringing new life to the organization."


"Readers will come away with a better understanding of Annan's philosophy with regard to how the United Nations should participate in global governance and the role the secretary general should play in world affairs. VERDICT Recommended reading for those interested in international relations or recent UN history. This is a strong companion to Annan's earlier work with Nadar Mousavizadeh, Interventions." -Library Journal "This long-awaited book by Kofi Annan provides remarkable lessons of history during his service as Secretary-General, combined with advice and counsel that are valuable to all world leaders for meeting future challenges and opportunities." -Jimmy Carter "Kofi Annan is a man himself committed to the principles he asks of others. This vital book brings to us the practice of his indomitable credo: justice, peace, and fulfillment of the real needs of the human condition for `We the Peoples.'" -Nadine Gordimer "We hear in this book the clear and persuasive voice of a man who stood at the turn of a century and believed that he could make a difference, personally and institutionally. And he did. Elected by states, he stood for people, and in dealing with both he changed for the better how we view international relations." -Louise Arbour "We the Peoples will help to illumine the major cross-currents of international politics, the tensions between international idealism and state-based realism, the evolution of the concept of the international community and the role of global norms in shaping the terms of engagement between states, international organizations and civil society actors on the contested terrain of world politics, and the sense of cosmopolitan solidarity." -Global Governance
