About this product
- Description<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC -//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN > Brock Chisholm was one of the most influential Canadians of the twentieth century. A world-rewned psychiatrist, he was the first director-general of the World Health Organization and built it up against overwhelming political odds in the years immediately following the Second World War. An atheist and a fierce critic of jingoistic nationalism, he supported world peace and world government and became a champion of the United Nations and the WHO. Post-1945 international politics, global health issues, and medical history intersect in this highly readable account of a remarkable Canadian.
