Annan’s Book Focuses on UN Experiences

Annan says his new memoir came about because he was witness to some of the major events of our time

Former United Nations (UN) secretary-general, Kofi Annan, says his new memoir came about because he was witness to some of the major events of our time - from the collapse of the Cold War to the Rwandan genocide.

Speaking about his book, 'Interventions: A Life in War and Peace', Annan talks about the shifting sands at the UN during his tenure, his experiences growing up in Ghana and the perspectives of how those early years in Africa's struggle for independence would shape his later years as a diplomat at the highest levels.

In addition, he describes his reason for publishing the memoirs as a personal account of his 40 years of service to the UN, which culminated in his election as secretary general in 1997.
