U Thant - the third Secretary-General of the United Nations
U Thant of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), served two terms at the helm of the United Nations. He was first appointed in an acting capacity in 1961 - in the aftermath of his predecessor's death - followed by two unanimous appointments for a full term, respectively, in 1962 and 1966. In this edition of Character Sketches, UN veteran Brian Urquhart presents an up-close look into the decade-long tenure of the UN's third Secretary-General, with a detailed account of how U Thant steered the Organization through increasingly complex challenges at the peak of Cold War, with his belief in preventive diplomacy and pursuit of moderation.
