To preview the CD-ROM, please click here or on the image above. Please note, for copyright reasons, the online demo version only includes the interview transcripts of the three project co-directors, Louis Emmerij, Richard Jolly, and Thomas G. Weiss, and the search function has been disabled. All transcripts and the search engine are available only on the CD-ROM.

This CD-ROM contains the complete transcripts of 79 individuals that were excerpted in Thomas G. Weiss, Tatiana Carayannis, Louis Emmerij, and Richard Jolly, UN Voices: The Struggle for Development and Social Justice (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2005). Readers will find the human and moving life stories of an extraordinary group of people from around the globe who contributed to the economic and social record of the United Nations. Among those interviewed are such noted figures as Kofi Annan, Margaret Anstee, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Noeleen Heyzer, Conor Cruise O’Brien, Javier Pérez de Cuéllar, Amartya Sen, and Kurt Waldheim as well as many less well-known UN professional men and women who have made significant contributions to the international struggle for a better world. Their experiences bring to life the UN’s contributions in dealing with such events as the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, and September 11, 2001, and such issues as human rights, decolonization, the environment, poverty, and gender.
