Politics and Conscience: Dag Hammarskjöld on the Art of Ethical Leadership

Politics and Conscience
This is how to lead a world that works, a world that isn't recklessly or ignorantly sliding toward disaster. This is the sound of true leadership: deeply informed, psychologically astute, principled without self-adulation, clear and quiet, inspiring. We can build for ourselves, and now, on the basis of Dag Hammarskj÷ld's thought and example.
