Inhalt:

"Dag Hammarskjèold served as Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1953 until his tragic death in a suspicious plane crash in 1961. During those years he saw the fledgling international organization through numerous crises with a skillfulness thatdrew much acclaim. As readers of his now-classic diary, Markings, are aware, Hammarskjèold saw political leadership as an honor calling for humility, moral examinations, and spiritual reflection. In this comprehensive handbook, acclaimed biographer RogerLipsey details the moral code by which Hammarskjèold lived and made critical decisions. What emerges is a portrait of a man who struck a remarkable balance between patience and action, empathy and courage, self-interest and common gain. Structured through short sections on themes such as values-based leadership, perseverance, and negotiation, Politics and Conscience offers a vision of ethical leadership as relevant today as it was in Hammarskjèold's time. In our era of zero-sum politics, Lipsey shows politicians and civilians alike how Hammarskjèold's political principles and practical wisdom support the betterment of the common good"--
