    ♦ Publication of The UN Secretary-General and Moral Authority: Ethics and Religion in International Leadership (Georgetown University Press, ) * See a review of the book from Human Rights & Human Welfare ♦ Publication of From Manager to Visionary: The Secretary-General of the United Nations (Palgrave Macmillan, ). The inherent difficulty of the Secretary-General’s job is the result of tensions built into the United Nations system, especially the gap between the high ideals set out in the UN Charter and the hard reality of great power diplomacy on which it depends.
