Short essays by younger historians on the work of ten diplomats. Although none of the subjects significantly influenced Washington policy, their ideas help us to understand two uninspiring decades and often point to paths not taken. The essays on Prentiss Gilbert, who was the American contact with the League of Nations, and on Soviet specialist Loy Henderson are particularly good.
