Kofi Annan by Stanley Meisler
Book DescriptionIn this thoughtful, balanced biography, former Los Angeles Times foreign and diplomatic correspondent Stanley Meisler traces Kofi Annan's unconventional rise from optimistic student to striving personnel and budget specialist in the United Nations bureaucracy to full-time manager of the world's crises. The book presents a unique portrait of this widely admired leader, with Annan's own view of events tempered and augmented by those of his allies and opponents, defenders and detractors.

Born in Ghana and educated in North America and Europe, Kofi Annan was elected Secretary-General of the United Nations in 1996, the first Black African to serve in that position and the first to come up through the ranks.
