Author(s): Kofi Annan; Nader Mousavizadeh
A "candid, courageous, and unsparing memoir" (The New York Review of Books) of post-Cold War politics and global statecraft
Written with eloquence and unprecedented candor, Interventions is the story of Kofi Annan's remarkable time at the center of the world stage. After forty years of service at the United Nations, Annan--who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001--shares his unique experiences during the terrorist attacks of September 11; the American invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan; the war between Israel, Hizbollah, and Lebanon; the brutal conflicts of Somalia, Rwanda, and Bosnia; and the geopolitical transformations following the end of the Cold War. A personal biography of global statecraft, Interventions is as much a memoir as a guide to world order--past, present, and future.
