Über diesen Titel


"David Newsom is a diplomat’s diplomat, cool under fire, experienced, wise." —Marvin Kalb

"This is a first-rate account of the role of diplomacy in the promotion of our national interest." —Edmund S. Muskie

"... a splendid book... " —Choice

"... it offers a point of view on foreign policy that is extremely valuable—that of the practitioner." —Perspective

"The book should be required reading for every foreign official about to deal for the first time with the United States and for every American contemplating a diplomatic career." —Foreign Affairs

"... thought-provoking... crisp, readable... rich with anecdotes... It is a gentle call worth heeding from a diplomat who knows the score." —The Christian Science Monitor

"... highly readable... Newsom offers commonsense advice and fresh insights. This is a book that belongs on every Foreign Service-related reading list." —Foreign Service Journal

"This is a lucid and a beautifully balanced book." —International Affairs

This book examines how diplomacy has changed since World War II and what Americans seem to want from foreign policy.

From Library Journal:

A former ambassador and Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs (1978-81), Newsom surveys diplomacy's complex realities. Though not writing a memoir, he draws on 40 years experience to show the tensions between democracy and diplomacy. He argues that Americans are committed to peace and friendship, often without understanding the interests that drive other nations. If the United States is to cope with violent change and attacks on our values, it must shed illusions of omnipotence. Overall, Newsom favors negotiated changenot unilateral efforts to restore military power. He feels we neglect a vital resource: our professional diplomats. A solid work for informed lay readers and specialists. Ray Walser, U.S. Military Academy, West Point, N.Y.
