Inside the Life of a Working Diplomat
av John Shaw
Using the life and work of one of the world’s most accomplished diplomats, Sweden’s Jan Eliasson, this provocative book offers a unique inside view of how modern diplomacy shapes world political debate and affects the outcome of major events and international relations.
Ambassador Eliasson has provided diplomatic reporter John Shaw with up close access to his work for a year - his last in Washington as ambassador. Shaw has attended policy meetings with the Ambassador, watched him give speeches, host high-level receptions, and interact with other senior diplomats.
Using Eliasson as the vehicle, "The Ambassador" delves into what modern diplomats really do and offers a unique, personal, behind-the-scenes glimpse of international statesmanship. Eliasson is of special interest because he was also the president of United Nations General Assembly from 2005 to 2006.
