Much of this book is light and chatty, which is deceiving, because in places the author suddenly becomes deadly serious about politicians and the foolish decisions they can make. Jean Kennedy Smith, Bill Clinton, Warren Christopher, and others get a critical treatment from a person who has observed their decisions from close hand.

Raymond Seitz was the American Ambassador to Britain for three tours of duty in the 1980s/90s; he really likes the country and this book of memoirs is a funny, cool, clear-headed look at us and our way of life. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0753805197, Paperback)

OVER HERE does for Great Britain what Alistair Cooke has done for the States. Raymond Seitz was US Ambassador to Britain from 1990 to 1994. Unlike the majority of his predecessors he didn't return home, but decided to stay on in the UK. Again, unlike the majority of US Ambassadors, Seitz was not a political appointment, but a career diplomat - and one of the most successful of his generation. Following on from his successful radio 4 series of the same title, OVER HERE, is about the Transatlantic relationship at every level : Politics, diplomacy, education, language, sports, animals, currency, pomp and circumstance.
