Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

"America's Other Army" brings the high-flying world of international diplomacy down to earth and puts a human face on a mysterious profession that has undergone a dramatic transformation since September 11, 2001.

Through the stories of American diplomats, the book explains how their work affects millions of people in the United States and around the world every day, and how it contributes directly to U.S. security and prosperity. It shows a more inclusive American diplomacy that has moved beyond interacting with governments and has engaged with the private sector, civil society and individual citizens.

Having visited 77 embassies and consulates, and interviewed more than 600 American diplomats, the author reveals a Foreign Service whose diversity and professional versatility have shattered old perceptions and redefined modern diplomacy. But he also depicts a service not fully equipped to address the complex challenges of the 21st century.

4.0 van 5 sterren Great, handy volume for aspiring or new diplomats 15 november 2013
door J&SLeavitt - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
Probably a three-star for long-time members of the Foreign Service, but a solid four-star for those unfamiliar with the Foreign Service and relatively new hires. "America's Other Army" ought to be required reading in the Foreign Service's orientation course, as it more succinctly, accurately, and engagingly traces the contours of State, outlines the roles of each Foreign Service cone, and identifies the main issues and debates swirling around Foggy Bottom better than anything I experienced during my orientation a little over a year ago. Now, having stumbled around the bureaucracy for a full year and still feeling pretty bewildered by its scope and inertia, I found in "America's Other Army" a nice wrap-up of most everything I've learned so far. Plus, it's encouraging to suddenly know that the shortcomings and oddities I've discovered over the past year, isolated at a small consulate in the field, aren't just me getting quickly jaded -- rather, at least some of my issues are widespread or longstanding issues that the Department is at least talking about. I wouldn't have known without picking up the book -- or serving a tour in Washington in five or six years. Reading the book is much more convenient.

Long-time diplomats may find little new here, and non-State personnel may find the vocabulary of diplomacy unfamiliar and unwieldy. But, again, newbies know the lingo but not necessarily the issues. And the issues are all here in a nice little quick-read volume.

4.0 van 5 sterren Very Good Background on the Foreign Service 14 januari 2013
door consulardude - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
I have been in the Foreign Service for 20 years, and found this book to be a very good read. It isn't a sweeping, historical look at the Foreign Service, but it does provide an excellent introduction to the career, some good examples of the men and women who embark upon it, the challenges that we face, and the issues we deal with. Kralev's portrait is mostly a positive one -- he clearly respects the profession and admires the men and women of the Foreign Service, but he also does a good job of highlighting some of the areas of improvement needed. In writing his book, he interviewed a broad selection of Foreign Service officers from various levels and diverse backgrounds as well as several Secretaries of State. I enjoyed the book on Kindle so much that I also picked up a paperback copy when I went and heard Mr. Kralev speak. I especially recommend this book for anyone contemplating a career in the Foreign Service. You should also pick up "Inside a U.S. Embassy."

This book provides good insights on how the foreign service works and clearly identified its many shortcomings. It also addressed how it has evolved since the attacks on 9/11. The military comes under a lot of public and Congressional scrutiny that I don't see applied to the foreign service. If it came under the same level of scrutiny, it is likely it would be better resourced and its leaders held accountable for that resourcing.

4.0 van 5 sterren Solid and informative 29 augustus 2016
door P. Elliot - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
It won't give you a piercing insight into all the challenges of the foreign service, but it does an excellent job of putting in plain English the many aspects of our work that Americans don't understand but take for granted. A solid primer.
5.0 van 5 sterren Well worth the read 12 februari 2017
door Tyler Young - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
Superbly well written and packed full of information - explicitly and implicitly. The book is well balanced between the fantastically exciting opportunities and shocking costs the Foreign Service involves. I highly recommend this for any prospective recruits or members of the public who want to know more about our army of diplomats abroad.
