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.
