After serving as president of OberlinCollege, he became a "citizen diplomat," working toward improvinginternational Cold War relations. During the 1990s, he served as board chair ofthe nonprofit global corporation Internews and promoted democracy via free andindependent media. When the Cold War ended with the collapse of the USSR,Fuller reflected on his career and realized that he had been, at differenttimes in his life, a somebody and a nobody.

Three years later, he publisheda sequel that focuses on building a "dignitarian society" titled All Rise: Somebodies, Nobodies, and thePolitics of Dignity. With co-author Pamela Gerloff, he has also published Dignity for All: How to Create a WorldWithout Rankism.
