This compilation is crucial to understanding how the UN has evolved since World War II. Those were very difficult times; understanding how this has all worked since 1945 after the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, makes clear that reading the books by all of the Secretaries General should be part of school curricula at even elementary school levels up to University levels in every nation. Doing so would impart the vitally needed overview of how to maintain and how to preserve Peace.

The list of books by the Secretaries General commences with Trygve Lie's In the Cause of Peace.

This viewpoint completely counters what Microsoft Founder William Henry Gates III announced a few years ago when he clearly stated on video that he wants to see the world's population not reach 9 billion, but to have it reduced by 15% with the use of vaccinations [Please read that last sentence aloud to more fully comprehend it]. This is unacceptable even as a new form of genocide and as a new form of biochemical warfare.

The United Nations headquarters in New York City sits on 16 acres of land purchased with an $8 million donation made in 1946 by John D. Rockefeller II, from land owned by William Zeckendorf Sr.

The building was designed by The United Nations is headquartered in New York City, in a complex designed by a board of architects led by Wallace Harrison, and built by the architectural firm Harrison & Abramovitz, as well as Le Corbusier as well as the architect of Brasilia, Oscar Niemeyer, who lived to be 104 and died Thursday, 5 December 2012.

Prior to the construction of the current complex, the UN was headquartered at a temporary location at the Sperry Corporation's offices in Lake Success, New York, an eastern suburb of the city in Nassau County on Long Island, from 1946 to 1952. The present location is considered international territory.

Completed: October 9, 1952; 67 years ago

The complex has served as the official headquarters of the United Nations since its completion in 1952. It is located in the Turtle Bay neighborhood of Manhattan, on 17 to 18 acres of grounds overlooking the East River. Its borders are First Avenue on the west, East 42nd Street to the south, East 48th Street on the north and the East River to the east.

The headquarters holds the seats of the principal organs of the UN, including the General Assembly and the Security Council, but excluding the International Court of Justice, which is seated in the Hague. The United Nations has three additional, subsidiary, regional headquarters, or headquarters districts. These were opened in Geneva (Switzerland) in 1946, Vienna (Austria) in 1980, and Nairobi (Kenya) in 1996.
