INSIDE THE GLASS BUILDING: Interviews with UN Secretaries General (4 Programs) DVD
While the United Nations Secretary-General often attracts the media spotlight, history has rarely recorded the personal impressions of the world body's top leader. In this four-part series, Secretary-General Kofi Annan and three of his predecessors - Kurt Waldheim, Javier Peréz de Cuéllar, and Boutros Boutros-Ghali - share their thoughts about serving in the often-unenviable post. Rarely seen archival images and footage supplement each interview. For students of international politics and history, these programs offer valuable insight into the decision-making process within the UN as well as the organization's strengths and limitations.
There are four 27-31 minute programs:
KURT WALDHEIM: UN Secretary-General, 1972-1981
JAVIER PEREZ DE CUELLAR: UN Secretary-General, 1982-1991
BOUTROS BOUTROS-GHALI: UN Secretary-General, 1992-1996 |
KOFI ANNAN: UN Secretary-General, 1997-2006
