"Life On The Frontlines Of American Diplomacy: A Memoir" By Christopher Hill
Christopher Hill was on the front lines in the Balkans at the breakup of Yugoslavia. In Outpost: Life on the Frontlines of American Diplomacy: A Memoir, he takes us from one-on-one meetings with the dictator Milosevic, to Bosnia and Kosovo, to the Dayton conference, where a truce was brokered.
He draws upon lessons learned as a Peace Corps volunteer in Cameroon early on in his career and details his prodigious experience as a US ambassador. He was the first American Ambassador to Macedonia; Ambassador to Poland, where he also served in the depth of the cold war; Ambassador to South Korea and chief disarmament negotiator in North Korea; and Hillary Clinton’s hand-picked Ambassador to Iraq.
