Overview

What is it like to be a diplomat in six far-flung nations?



Lewis Richard Luchs gives you a behind-the-scenes look at life as a diplomat in this fascinating memoir about his career in the U.S. Foreign Service.



He wore three hats at once in exotic Madagascar, witnessed a military coup d'état in Mali, saw the creation of modern Singapore, felt the excitement of working in a France emerging from the self-isolation of the Gaullist era, participated in shaping Islamic Malaysia's future, and observed Australia's efforts to redefine itself in a new Asia.



In sharing his challenges, sorrows, and joys, he answers questions such as: What do embassies do? What do diplomats do? What stresses are put on a diplomat's family? What is it like to face terrorist threats?



Take a broader view of the world, find out what U.S. embassies do, and discover what life in the Foreign Service is like with Diplomatic Tales.
