Dr. Robert Muller, former assistant secretary general of the United
Nations, now Chancellor emeritus of the University of Peace in Costa
Rica was one of the people
who witnessed the founding of the U.N. and has worked in support of or
inside the U.N. ever since. Recently he was in San Francisco to be
honored for his service to the world through the U.N. and
through his writings and teachings for peace. At age eighty, Dr. Muller
surprised, even stunned, many in the audience that day with his most
positive assessment of where the world stands now regarding war and peace.
Robert Muller's courageous story is an inspiring antidote to gloom-mongers and flag-wavers alike. With the United Nations at the forefront of today's headlines, Prophet, the Hatmaker's Son gives insight into why one young man dedicated his life to being part of its mission. Within a span of 40 years - from UN Intern to Assistant Secretary General - Robert Muller became the most important world planner and peace-maker you may never have heard of until now.
"When the true history of the Twentieth Century is told, Robert Muller's name will stand out as one of the greatest world servers for peace of all time. This powerful book is filled with stories and anecdotes that delight as they illumine the path of greatness.
Prophet, the Hatmaker's Son by Douglas Gillies ennobles as it instructs. One discovers how high intelligence matched with deep compassion can lead to the way of wisdom and the winning of a better world. Robert Muller is a spiritual giant as well as a hugely original thinker, and the story of his life is a testament to the glory of the human spirit.
