A blog about Dag Hammarskjöld
Roger Lipsey is an active member in the Foundation’s network. He has a book in progress on the mind and methods of Dag Hammarskjöld, based on research in the United States, Sweden, and Great Britain. While that book takes shape—and perhaps well after publication—he has established a blog “as a reader’s place where Hammarskjöld’s political wisdom and profound humanism can be rediscovered, as fresh and compelling today as in its own era, the mid twentieth century”. http://www.dag-hammarskjold.com
