Career Diplomacy, Second Edition
Life and Work in the U.S. Foreign Service
The second edition addresses major changes that have occurred since 2007: the controversial effort to build an expeditionary foreign service to lead the work of stabilization and reconstruction in fragile states; deepening cooperation with the U.S. military and the changing role of the service in Iraq and Afghanistan; the ongoing surge in foreign service recruitment and hiring at the Department of State and U.S. Agency for International Development; and the growing integration of USAID's budget and mission with those of the Department of State.

"Current, dispassionate, and accurate, Career Diplomacy is the must-read book for those seeking understanding of today's Foreign Service. From traditional diplomacy to work in the provinces of Afghanistan and Iraq, it is all here. "—Ronald E. Neumann, former ambassador and president, American Academy of Diplomacy
"Career Diplomacy introduces readers to one of the most interesting and challenging professions—diplomacy—and one that most Americans know very little about. The book is one of the few on the subject and a great resource for anyone considering a Foreign Service career. "—Susan Johnson, president, American Foreign Service Association
