4.0 su 5 stelle Great, handy volume for aspiring or new diplomats 15 novembre 2013
Di J&SLeavitt - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
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 su 5 stelle Very Good Background on the Foreign Service 14 gennaio 2013
Di William Bent - Pubblicato su

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."
5.0 su 5 stelle This is a great apologetic for the Foreign Service!!! 3 giugno 2013
Di S. Osterloh - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a great primer for life in the Foreign Service and the general apologetic that the pittance we pay for the Foreign Service compared to the vast amounts of money that we pay for the military is so worth it. Kraiev gives a balanced, non-political view, deftly pointing out the positive contributions of each of the recent Secretaries of State regardless of political affiliation. He also does a great job of sketching the various cones of the Foreign Service and how people in each of those cones contribute positively in helping the U.S. achieve and maintain national interests. The book made me proud of those who serve in the Foreign Service.
4.0 su 5 stelle Learn About the U.S. Foreign Service 12 maggio 2013
Di Anne E. Grimes - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As a practicing foreign service officer, I found this to be one of the best books on the foreign service that I've read. If you want a good overview of what the foreign service does, this book is for you. On the other hand, I often found myself wanting to say to the author, "wait, that has not been my experience." It's not apparent how the author found/picked the sources for the book, particularly those in the mid and lower ranks, and I don't see as good a representation or analysis of generational differences in the FS asI would like. All that being said, I found it a great read!

Expository; it reads like a long, well-researched wiki article. You'll definitely learn something if you know very little about the foreign service.
