    The Ambassador

    The Ambassador
    Inside the Life of a Working Diplomat
    Using the life and work of one of the world’s most accomplished diplomats, Sweden’s Jan Eliasson, this provocative book offers a unique inside view of how modern diplomacy shapes world political debate and affects the outcome of major events and international relations. Ambassador Eliasson has provided diplomatic reporter John Shaw with 'up close' access to his work for a year--his last in Washington as ambassador. Shaw has attended policy meetings with the Ambassador, watched him give speeches, host high-level receptions and interact with other senior diplomats. Using Eliasson as the case study, The Ambassador delves into what modern diplomats really do and offers a unique, person, behind-the-scenes glimpse of international statesmanship. Eliasson is of special interest because he just completed his term as President of the United Nations General Assembly and now serves as the Swedish Foreign Minister.
