El Salvador: Embassy Under Attack
El Salvador: Embassy Under Attack
By Ambassador Frank J. Devine
Vantage Press, 1981, 208 pp

The recent U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador briefly recapitulates developments in that fractured country during the period of his mission, October 1977 to 1980, and provides insights and personal anecdotes. Noting the many duties and interests which make claims upon an ambassador, he observes that "our diplomatic representatives cannot serve these other interests well if required to overemphasize human rights at their expense."
