„There is no better rule of thumb for a Secretary General at a moment of new challenge or crisis than to ask himself: How would Dag Hammarskjöld have managed?“
These words of Kofi Annan underline the importance of Dag Hammarskjöld in the office of UN Secretary General from 1953 to 1961. He prevented World War 3 between China and the U.S. in 1955, banned the FBI and CIA from UN buildings, ignored the veto in the Security Council in 1956, and invented the UN blue helmet soldiers in the Suez Canal crisis.
You guess why this world citizen was assassinated in September 1961?
Who was this person who was posthumously awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1961 – as an advocate of a Third Force or Third Way between the two superpowers and as an initiator in the process of decolonization? This book provides answers that point to our present and to the future of humanity.
