“The best description of life the foreign service — its challenges, dangers, satisfactions, and fun — I have ever seen. It paints a superb picture of life abroad and at home, including both its good and bad aspects, and does a brilliant job of pointing out how our diplomacy must change if it is to meet the tremendous changes and challenges of the twenty-first century.”
Hon. Lawrence S. Eagleburger, former Secretary of State

“A gem, a one-stop shop for citizens, US officials, foreign diplomats, and prospective American Foreign Service Officers who want to understand how American diplomacy and foreign policy are organized and conducted.”
Hon. Chester A. Crocker, James R. Schlesinger Professor of Strategic Studies, Georgetown University

“Frank, incisive, and a good read. I don’t know how we got along without it.”
General John A. Galvin, USA (Ret.), former Supreme Allied Commander, Europe

“Reading this book will inspire young people to yearn for a foreign service career; will generate collegial confidence among policy makers in other government branches; and will assure citizens that their foreign service tax dollars are well spent.”
Dr. Lewis Goodman, Dean, School of International Service, American University

Career Diplomacy is a fascinating and readable book about one of America’s lesser known assets — the Diplomatic Service.”
Hon. James R. Jones, former US ambassador to Mexico and Chairman of the World Affairs Councils of America
