By his final departure, Tchaikovsky 19 was broken, a victim of intelligence and counterintelligence failures, Reagans rules of reciprocity, and a dearth of area and language expertise. The U.S. shouldnt have its diplomats skipping around like a water bug from one country to another, in Ambassador Charles Bohlens memorable phrase.

Diplomats should be trained in the language, culture, and history of specific regions, and serve in them more than once. Washingtons failure to prepare diplomats for the Middle East comes as no surprise- years ago it had lost interest in developing area and language experts. Together with much wisdom about American diplomacy, this rich memoir provides keen insight into Russian thinking and behavior (George Feifer, The Girl from Petrovka).
