520    "Born just one year before the United Nations itself, Ban 
       Ki-moon came of age with the world body. His earliest 
       memories are haunted by the sound of bombs dropping on his
       village and the sight of fires consuming what remained. At
       six years old he fled with his family, trudging for miles 
       in mud-soaked shoes, suffering from incessant hunger, and 
       wondering how they would survive-until the United Nations 
       rescued them. And after he experienced its lifesaving 
       mission first-hand, this organization would become his 
       life's calling. Resolved is Ban Ki-moon's personal account
       of his ten years at the helm of the world body at a time 
       of historic turmoil and promise. Ban performed what has 
       been called "the world's most impossible job" with a 
       natural ability to relate to the poor and struggling 
       people the organization was created to serve and a genuine
       belief in its capacity for global transformation. He 
       explores past flashpoints-including the September 11 
       terrorist attacks, engaging the Kim dynasty in North Korea,
       the Paris climate accords, the Ebola outbreak, the Arab 
       Spring, and managing the UN's relationship with the United
       States-to offer the story of diplomatic lessons learned. 
       Freed from the diplomatic constraints that come with the 
       job, he offers a frank and bracing look at the people and 
       events that shaped our era as well as a piercing analysis 
       of what lies ahead"--|cProvided by publisher
