Boutros Boutros-Ghali — A Jacana Pocket History


This is the first historical biography in English to be published on Egpytain scholar-diplomat, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the most intellectually accomplished of the nine UN secretaries-general. The first African and first Arab to occupy the post, Boutros-Ghali held the office in the momentous Five post cold-war years (1992-1996), massively expanding UN peacekeeping and leading intellectual debates on development, democratisation, and human rights. He had earlier been a key architect of the Egypt-Israel peace treaty as Egypt’s minister of state for foreign affairs, a major figure in Third world diplomacy, and a Professor of International Law and Relations. This accessible biography sets Boutros-Ghali’s career within the political, social, and cultural contexts from which he emerged.
