From the wars in theMoreAn inside the room memoir from one of our most distinguished ambassadors who-in a career of service to the country-was sent to some of the most dangerous outposts of American diplomacy.

From the wars in the Balkans to the brutality of North Korea to the endless war in Iraq, this is the real life of an American diplomat.Hill was on the front lines in the Balkans at the breakup of Yugoslavia. 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 was the first American Ambassador to Macedonia, Ambassador to Poland where he also served in the depth of the cold war and South Korea, chief disarmament negotiator in North Korea, and Hillary Clintons hand-picked Ambassador to Iraq.Hills account is an adventure story of danger, loss of comrades, high stakes negotiations, and imperfect options.

There are fascinating portraits of war criminals (Mladic, Karadzic), of presidents (Bush, Clinton, and Obama), of vice presidents including Dick Cheney, of Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, and of Ambassadors Richard Holbrooke and Lawrence Eagleburger, among others.

Hill writes bluntly about the bureaucratic warfare in DC and expresses strong criticism of Americas aggressive interventions and wars of choice.
