Recollections of the American Half-Century

Essays on turning points in which I participated from 1945, when my family and I sailed to British India, to 1998, when I retired from the U.S. Foreign Service as U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan, after service in Switzerland, Poland, the USSR, Romania, the UK and Washington, D.C. For example, I was the U.S. notetaker in the final meeting at Reykjavik in October 1986.
