‘At a time when political leadership in many contexts seems to be assimilating itself to the worst and most corrosive bits of the entertainment industry, and when the whole ideal of public service is disregarded or despised, it matters that we know where to look for hope and challenge. Dag Hammarskjöld’s extraordinary example of a statesmanship that was at once astute, humble, courageous, patient and risky is as necessary for us as water in the desert; and in this welcome book, Hammarskjöld’s finest modern biographer sets out with model clarity and passion just what we might learn from him, just what we might hold ourselves accountable to.’
— Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College (Cambridge), Archbishop of Canterbury (ret.)
