Seller ID   24658

256 pp, large 8vo (8 15/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0563369558 B&w photographs. "The British Foreign Office is famous, venerable and misunderstood. While its public face is one of grandeur and formality, its inner workings are shroud ed in mystery. Now, for the first time, the Foreign Office has opened its doors to the BBC; in this book, and the television series which it accompanies, we can find out what life is really like for those who represent the UK abroad or serve m i n i s t ers at home. Among the many issues (the author) considers are what diplomats do and how they do it, why it is a difficult job for a woman, how the Foreign Office compares with the other foreign services, and why Britain seems out on a l im b in E ur op e. She looks at diplomats doing work which ranges from negotiating complicated deals in Brussels to visiting drug traffickers in Bangkok and dealing with death in Delhi. Throughout the book (she) captures the heady excitement that ca n go wit h b ein g a diplomat, but shows too how gruelling can be the demands the life makes on diplomats and their families." Two tiny scuffs on front board, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, small area of discolorization at top edge of rear boa rd . Dust jac ket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor soiling on rear panel, minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good
