"I developed deep respect for the U.S. Foreign Service, and Nicholas Kralev shows why. These outstanding diplomats take on tough and dangerous jobs, and in the new edition of America's Other Army Kralev brings us up to date on how they deserve our support."
-- Madeleine K. Albright, former secretary of state
"Nicholas Kralev's excellent account of the U.S. Foreign Service at the beginning of this new century makes vivid the continuing relevance and struggle of diplomacy to keep pace with a rapidly changing international landscape. For over a decade, Kralev has embedded himself with America's professional diplomats. He presents the Foreign Service as it is -- with all its flaws and strengths -- and through his portraits of civilians on the front lines of diplomacy."
-- William J. Burns, former deputy secretary of state
"As a longtime member of the U.S. Foreign Service, I have come to know and appreciate Nicholas Kralev's broad knowledge of how it operates and serves the nation. I can think of no better source for an aspiring diplomat, a senior business executive, an academic or a think-tank expert to consult than Kralev's seminal work on the Foreign Service."
-- Thomas R. Pickering, former undersecretary of state
"The book offers a thorough picture of how the Foreign Service has changed since the start of the war on terror, as well as where it might be headed from here..."
"If you really want to know what diplomats do and who they are, get this book..."
"Nicholas Kralev has accomplished the well-nigh impossible task of writing a highly readable book on the Foreign Service."

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.
Definitely a worthwhile book to read if you're interested in the Foreign Service.
