Summary
Consists of newspaper articles written on three topics--the Iraq war, the war on terror, and weapons of mass destruction. "Uniquely in the 62-year history of the United Nations, Ramesh Thakur was given and exercised the latitude to write for public consumption on the contested topics of the day, making it clear that he was expressing his personal opinion. This book brings together a collection of Dr Thakur's opinion articles from a number of newspapers around the world: The Australian, The Canberra Times, The Daily Yomiuri, The Globe and Mail, The Hindu, The International Herald Tribune, and The Japan Times, plus one article from the UN Chronicle."--Publisher's description
