Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"In February 2003, John Brady Kiesling publicly resigned his position as political counselor of the U.S. Embassy in Athens to protest the Bush administration's impending invasion of Iraq. He was certain the security, economic, and moral costs of this war would far outweigh any benefit to the American people. Events in the Middle East quickly seemed to prove him right." "Diplomacy Lessons is inspired by Kiesling's conviction that disasters like Iraq are foreseeable and preventable. America's power to shape the world in its own interests is constrained by hundreds of foreign nationalisms and by human nature. The policy decisions of America's foreign partners are driven by domestic politics, just as they are in the United States. Kiesling calls for foreign policy realism that recognizes the limits of U.S. power and considers what is possible and affordable in a world Americans share with more than six billion other people."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
