Product description

Review

"Meisler has done an admirable job in portraying a complex and shrewd man a fascinating read". ( Books Quarterly, March 2007)

"Meisler is a distinguished foreign affairs correspondent who has know Annan for many years and interviewed him for this book." (Diplomat, March 2007)

" comprehensive and well–written...anyone genuinely interested in the affairs of this all–important world body, ultimate guarantor of peace and stability, should read it." (The Irish Times Weekend Supplement, Saturday 21st April 2007)

--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review

"[This is] a revealing and timely portrait of a remarkable man who has helped shape the first years of the 21 st century. After finishing Stanley Meisler s book, my only regret is that Kofi Annan isn t running for president of the United States. He d have my vote in a heartbeat."
David Lamb, author of The Africans

"Stanley Meisler, an old and steady hand at the UN, has written a readable, wise, balanced and most thoughtful biography of Secretary General Kofi Annan. The focus is on his victories and defeats as Secretary General and on his problems and challenges and how he faced them. Stanley looks at the charges against him as well as his undoubted contributions and calls it as he sees it. This book is essential for anyone who wants to understand Kofi Annan′s contribution to the "house" as well as the genesis and exodus of the attacks against him."
Thomas R. Pickering, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and former undersecretary of state

"Kofi Annan is one of the world′s most compelling figures. This is both an absorbing biography of a remarkable man and a fast–paced history of the United Nations at the opening of a new century. Stanley Meisler has made the UN story come alive as a flesh–and–blood drama of outsized egos clashing over high–stakes issues."
Doyle McManus, Washington bureau chief, Los Angeles Times

"Stanley Meisler is a great reporter – this is a wonderfully observed and beautifully written book. It is the definitive portrait of Kofi Annan′s calm and dedicated leadership of the United Nations at a time of huge international turmoil."
William Shawcross, Author of Deliver Us From Evil: Peacekeeping, Warlords, and a World of Endless Conflict
