"Complicity with evil" : the United Nations in the age of modern genocide by Adam LeBor( )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 2,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first to examine in detail the crucial role of the Secretariat, its relationship with the Security Council, and the failure of UN officials themselves to confront genocide. LeBor argues the UN must return to its founding principles, take a moral stand, and set the agenda of the Security Council instead of merely following the lead of the great powers. LeBor draws on dozens of firsthand interviews with UN officials, current and former, and such international diplomats as Madeleine Albright, Richard Holbrooke, Douglas Hurd, and David Owen. This book sets the terms for discussion as UN Secretary General Kofi Annan steps down to make room for a new head of the world body, and political observers assess Annan's legacy and look to the future of the world organisation."--Jacket

City of oranges : an intimate history of Arabs and Jews in Jaffa by Adam LeBor( Book )

23 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The millennia-old port of Jaffa, now part of Tel Aviv, was once known as the "Bride of Palestine," one of the truly cosmopolitan cities of the Mediterranean. There Muslims, Jews, and Christians lived, worked, and celebrated together - and it was commonplace for the Arabs of Jaffa to attend a wedding at the house of the Jewish Chelouche family or for Jews and Arabs both to gather at the Jewish spice shop Tiv and the Arab Khamis Abulafia's twenty-four-hour bakery. Through intimate personal interviews and generations-old memoirs, letters, and diaries, Adam LeBor gives us a crucial look at the human lives behind the headlines - and a vivid narrative of cataclysmic change."--Jacket
Hitler's secret bankers : the myth of Swiss neutrality during the Holocaust by Adam LeBor( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There were no death certificates issued at Auschwitz. But Swiss bankers still demand them before handing over the assets of account holders killed in the Holocaust to their surviving relatives. The Jews of eastern Europe - and many in the west - entrusted their families' wealth to what they hoped would be a safe haven, the banks of Switzerland. Even if they died, their money would eventually be recovered by their surviving relatives, they believed. They were wrong. Millions of dollars, deposited decades ago in good faith by Jews who were to die in the Nazi genocide, are still in the vaults, earning interest and providing working capital for Swiss banks, say Jewish organizations and Holocaust survivors." "But the Swiss bankers' role as financiers to the Third Reich goes far beyond the dispute over dormant accounts. Based on newly declassified documents and archival research in Washington, London, and Jerusalem, Hitler's Secret Bankers reveals the full, hitherto unknown extent of Swiss economic collaboration with the Nazis. Swiss banks were the key foreign-currency providers of the Nazi war machine, and the Spanish pesetas and Portuguese escudos they provided paid for vital war materiel such as chrome and aluminum." "Recently declassified documents show how Swiss banks, for all their declarations of neutrality, knowingly accepted stolen gold - estimated to be worth between $200 million and $400 million - from the Nazis. One document, entitled "Allied Claims Against the Swiss for the Return of Looted Gold," also says that the Swiss National Bank "washed," as it puts, $100 million of looted gold by sending it to Portugal and Spain." "Hitler's Secret Bankers also reveals the details of the secret Nazi plan to launch an underground economic Fourth Reich at the war's end and exposes the links between Nazi intelligence chief Walter Schellenberg and his Swiss counterpart Roger Masson."--Jacket

Yael Azoulay does the United Nations' dirty work by cutting deals that most of us never hear about.

When Yael is assigned to eastern Congo to negotiate with Jean-Pierre Hakizimani, a Hutu warlord wanted for genocide, she offers him a generous plea bargain. Thanks to Congo's abundance of a valuable mineral used in computer and cell phone production, her number one priority is maintaining regional stability. But when she discovers that Hakizimani is linked to the death of the person she loved the most and that the UN is prepared to sanction mass murder, Yael soon realizes that salvation means not just saving others' lives but confronting her own inner demons

Der Turm zu Basel BIZ - Die Bank der Banken und ihre dunkle Geschichte by Adam LeBor( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die unauffälligste Bank der Welt ist gleichzeitig die wichtigste: Die Bank für Internationalen Zahlungsausgleich (BIZ), gleich neben dem Basler Bahnhof gelegen, ist nur den wenigsten ein Begriff, und doch steht sie seit ihrer Gründung 1930 im Mittelpunkt des globalen Finanzsystems. Als Bank der Zentralbanken koordiniert sie die Geldpolitik der wichtigsten Wirtschaftsmächte, verwaltet deren Währungsreserven und prägt die globale Finanzarchitektur. Doch der Institution fehlt jegliche Rechenschaftspflicht: Sie unterliegt nicht der schweizerischen Rechtsprechung und wird durch einen internationalen Vertrag geschützt. Die Diskussionen, die sie führt, sind geheim, und ihre Einlagen sind vor dem staatlichen Zugriff sicher. Adam LeBor zeichnet die Geschichte der BIZ detailliert nach, von ihrer zweifelhaften Rolle während des Zweiten Weltkriegs, als sie von den Nazis Raubgold entgegennahm, bis zu ihrer zentralen Funktion beim europäischen Einigungsprojekt - und wirft dabei Fragen auf: zur Transparenz des Finanzsystems und zur Art und Weise, wie in unseren Demokratien Macht ausgeübt wird
