From the American Foreign Service Association:
We are pleased to announce the publication of Inside a U.S. Embassy: Diplomacy at Work, the third edition of AFSA’s popular introduction to the Foreign Service. This all-new volume rolled off the presses on April 8 and is now available. The new book includes profiles, day-in-the-life chronicles and stories from 82 Foreign Service members serving at more than 50 U.S. posts around the world, and has been greatly expanded to include guides to the hiring process (State FSO and FSS, USAID, FCS, FAS, IBB) as well as sections on the country team and the Foreign Service career and life.
Inside a U.S. Embassy is a comprehensive guide to the Foreign Service and a great resource for anyone considering a Foreign Service career, as well as those who might simply want to better understand what the Foreign Service does for America.
Many embassies have found Inside a U.S. Embassy to be useful for outreach and representation. Embassies that have purchased 100 or more copies of the previous edition include Baghdad, Madrid, Panama City, Kuwait City, and Moscow. We hope the new edition will prove even more useful to our overseas missions.
