It was in the early 1990s and the three young people were looking to change their lives, and perhaps the world as well.Attracted by the ambitious work of UN peacekeeping, Andrew, Ken and Heidi paths of the cross in Cambodia, from where their destinies have become inextricably linked.In the years to come, their stories are intertwined across countries like Rwanda, Bosnia, Somalia and Haiti, a war-torn country, lawless men from places where UN intervention is needed, like nowhere else.Driven by idealism, the three of the difficulty to do the best they can, caught in more and more a tangle of bureaucratic and ineffective leadership apparatusAs disillusionment sets in, they try to keep their humanity through black humor, debauchery and the urgency of sex.”Brutal and moving in equal measure of Urgency, the Sex (And Other Desperate Measures) explores the most pressing global issues, without ever losing the sense of the personnel.Very critical of the West for the indifference of developing countries and UN nations to the repeated failure to intervene decisively, the book provoked enormous controversy over its initial publication.Kofi Annan called for the book to be banned, and the debate was sparked on the UN’s future direction.Brilliantly written and mordantly funny, it is a book that continues to make waves.
