"Carrer Diplomacy" answers many of the questions of logistics and process that go into a career in the Foreign Service. This book expands on much of the information available on the State Department's website and also answers many of the questions not disclosed there. Department structures and detailed information on career tracks and expectations are greatly expanded on. If you are interested in the Foreign Service and not just foreign policy, first read the American Foreign Service Association's "Inside a U.S. Embassy" and then make sure to read "Career Diplomacy".
