The Secretary-General's ability to influence global affairs often depends on how the international community regards his moral authority. In relation to such moral authority, past office-holders have drawn on their own ethics and religious backgroundsùas diverse as Lutheranism, Catholicism, Buddhism, and Coptic Christianityùto guide the role that they played in addressing the UN's goals in the international arena, such as the maintenance o+-+05366543068972ocn648760598file19930.53The Challenging role of the UN Secretary-General making "the most impossible job in the world" possibleHow has the role of the United Nations and its Secretary-General changed with the end of the Cold War? With the beginning of a New World Order? These questions are increasingly significant as the threat of nuclear-bloc confrontation is replaced by ethnic tensions and civil conflicts. In this first study of the office of the UN Secretary-General in this new era, Rivlin and Gordenker bring together leading scholars and practitioners to analyze these issues8683ocn004694925book19670.59Gordenker, LeonThe UN Secretary-General and the maintenance of peace7895ocn042922542file19980.39Newman, EdwardThe UN Secretary-General from the Cold War to the new era a global peace and security mandate?"This book examines the evolving peace and security activities of the United Nations Secretary-General in the context of developments in international politics."--Jacket+-+06566776857593ocn020525131book19900.28Hazzard, ShirleyCountenance of truth : the United Nations and the Waldheim caseHistoryBiography7022ocn040135253book19990.29Boutros-Ghali, BoutrosUnvanquished : a U.S.-U.N. sagaHistory"In this book Boutros-Ghali argues that U.S. policy toward the United Nations threatens the fragile fabric of the international organization. By selectively consulting the Security Council, the United States has frequently condemned the United Nations to the status of scapegoat in international affairs, notably during peacekeeping missions in Bosnia, Somalia, and Rwanda. Meanwhile, the United Nations's financial crisis persists as the United States fails to pay its bills while seeking to further increase its already considerable influence within the organization." "In October 1995 President Clinton lavishly praised Boutros-Ghali for his "outstanding leadership," and thanked him for his "vision." Yet, a mere four months later, the Clinton administration decided that Boutros-Ghali would have to go. What happened in that short time to convince the United States that the secretary-general was now a liability? United States domestic electoral politics were decisive: While campaigning for the primaries, Bob Dole was scoring heavily by repeatedly ridiculing Boutros-Ghali. To neutralize Dole's challenge, Clinton denied the controversial secretary-general a second term, vetoing his reelection in the Security Council despite unanimous support from its other members." "Boutros-Ghali reveals the dramatic conflict and the personalities involved and considers the future of the United Nations in light of American domination."--BOOK JACKET+-+750550028569711ocn001223174book19520.70Schwebel, Stephen MThe Secretary-General of the United Nations, his political powers and practice6304ocn006278005book19800.33Waldheim, KurtThe challenge of peace5576ocn074523326book20070.70Chesterman, SimonSecretary or general? : the UN Secretary-General in world politics"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. This book brings together the insights of senior UN staff, diplomats and scholars to examine the normative and political factors that shape this unique office with particular emphasis on how it has evolved in response to changing circumstances such as globalization and the onset of the 'war on terror'. The difficulties experienced by each Secretary-General reflect the profound ambivalence of states towards entrusting their security, interests or resources to an intergovernmental body." -- Publisher's description+-+K0612367054823ocn000137070book19700.66Rovine, Arthur WThe first fifty years; the Secretary-General in World Politics 1920-19704603ocn006198873book19800.59Waldheim, KurtBuilding the future order : the search for peace in an interdependent worldA collection of speeches and reports given by Kurt Waldheim during his eight years as Secretary-General of the United Nations, providing an overview of the nature of the U.N.'s work and of the Secretary-General's office45311ocn057068573book20050.79Gordenker, LeonThe UN Secretary-General and Secretariat"This book offers insight into the pulsing heart of the United Nations - the Secretariat and its head, the Secretary-General - and examines what this organization does and why." "Behind the public face of the Secretary-General Kofi Annan and his predecessors, an active corps of officials and advisers unceasingly have applied the decisions of the debating UN. They constitute the acting UN and face ceaseless pressures and challenges. They initiate or contribute to policies and activities that affect the 191 governments represented in the "debating UN." As chief officers of the UN Secretariat, the Secretaries-General have included such innovating figures as Annan and Dag Hammarskjold."--BOOK JACKET+-+34289806954493ocn009887700book19830.66Dag Hammarskjöld revisited : the UN Secretary-General as a force in world politics4473ocn156994142file20060.50Nations uniesDelivering as one report of the Secretary-General's High-level Panel on UN System-wide Coherence in the areas of development, humanitarian assistance and the environmentThe present report provides a series of ambitious but practical recommendations that can have a significant and long-lasting impact on the effectiveness and relevance of the United Nations system. The report proposes measures to strengthen coherence at the center in the areas of governance, funding and management that are critical for a revamped United Nations development system. Moreover, many of the proposals are meant to ensure a much more effective integration and strengthening of the policy and normative role of the United Nations and better alignment with operational roles and structures.--Publisher's description4317ocn070131213book20060.76Kille, Kent JFrom manager to visionary : the secretary-general of the United Nations"This study examines how the leadership qualities of the UN Secretaries-General affect how they address threats to peace and security. The personal traits of all seven Secretaries-General are measured and categorized into one of three leadership styles: managerial, strategic, and visionary. A framework of the influential activities available to the office is linked to each leadership style to establish a series of behavioral expectations. The connection is supported through a close examination of three office-holders: Dag Hammarskjold the visionary, Kurt Waldheim the manager, and Kofi Annan the strategist. This study demonstrates the impact of personal qualities on the operation of the Secretary-Generalship, provides a wealth of information on the office and the tenures of Hammarskjold, Waldheim and Annan, and extends knowledge on political leadership in the realm of international organization."--BOOK JACKET+-+39562485963682ocn022381100book19910.79Boudreau, TomSheathing the sword : the UN Secretary-General and the prevention of international conflictHistory+-+64561786853243342ocn021592903book19900.79Finger, Seymour MaxwellBending with the winds : Kurt Waldheim and the United Nations+-+56528402753243273ocn137260699book20070.70United StatesThe future of the United Nations under Ban Ki-Moon : hearing before the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives, One Hundred Tenth Congress, first session, February 13, 20072683ocn039539537book19970.76United StatesUnited Nations : the Office of the Secretary General and the prospects for reform : hearing before the Subcommittee on International Operations and Human Rights of the Committee on International Relations, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourth Congress, second session, September 24, 1996+-+7505500285Fri Mar 21 15:59:45 EDT 2014batch67476
