How could a man with a past mired in Nazi membership and alleged involvement in war crimes become Secretary General of the United Nations, an organization dedicated not only to the maintenance of peace but also to the preservation and advancement of human rights? Bending with the Winds is the result of Finger and Saltzman's exploration of that question. Hundreds of confidential telegrams and in-depth interviews, including some with Waldheim himself, provide a basis for study of his performance. This broad discussion leads to a search for a new procedure of choosing a Secretary General.
