The author's 32 years in the career foreign service ended in 1979 when his disagreements, as ambassador to Iran, with the Carter Administration's policy became intolerable to the White House. For details see his Mission to Iran (1981). This book emphasizes the personal side of a career spent mostly in Southeast Asia.
