Description
Fifteen years in the making, following hundreds of interviews both in and out of the State Department, this is the first full history of the U.S. Foreign Service. The former foreign editor of Look magazine and author of The U.S. Marine Corps Story, Robert Moskin traces America's diplomatic history from its founding—as nascent diplomats came up against seasoned Europeans during the days of Ben Franklin—up to the 2012 attack against the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. In his chronicle, Moskin introduces many devoted and courageous public servants in the Foreign Service, as well as some political spoilsmen and outright rogues.

"[In] this impressive and massive tome ... Moskin begins in the spring of 1776 when the Continental Congress sent Connecticut merchant Silas Deane on a secret mission to the court of French King Louis XVI to secure France's support for the fight against the British. Working chronologically and writing journalistically, Moskin concentrates mainly on secretaries of state and ambassadors, including well-known figures such as Benjamin Franklin, regarded as the father of the U.S. Foreign Service, and Thomas Jefferson, the first American secretary of state. He also highlights lesser-known figures such as 20th-century Middle East specialist Alfred 'Roy' Atherton, who began his three-decade career as a vice consul in Germany and went on to become ambassador to Egypt and then director general of the Foreign Service."—Publishers Weekly
