The Secretary-General of the United Nations is a unique figure in world politics. The difficulties experienced by each Secretary-General reflect the profound ambivalence of states towards entrusting their security, interests or resources to an intergovernmental body.

The Secretary-General of the United Nations is a unique figure in world politics. At once civil servant, the world's diplomat, lackey of the UN Security Council, and commander-in-chief of up to a hundred thousand peacekeepers, he or she depends on states for both the legitimacy and resources that enable the United Nations to function. The tension between these roles - of being secretary or general - has challenged every incumbent. Скачать (pdf, . 8 Mb) Читать.

  • felt boot
The book is an excellent collection of essays about the complex and multi-dimensioned position of Secretary-General of the United Nations. The essays are well-written, and are probably the best collection currently available on the subject. But, as good as the writings are, it must be said that their treatment of the critically important topic of the political powers of the U.N. Secretary-General needs to be further expanded and amplified.
