Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Veteran diplomatic correspondent Paul Richter goes behind the battles and the headlines to show how American ambassadors are the unconventional warriors in the Muslim world—running local government, directing drone strikes, nation-building, and risking their lives on the front lines. The State Department’s heroes are the front-line diplomats who have been unheralded, but crucial in the line of national defense for two decades of wars in the Middle East. In The Ambassadors, Paul Richter shares the astonishing, true-life stories of four expeditionary diplomats who “do the hardest things in the hardest places.” We’ll see Ryan Crocker’s effort to organize a new Afghan government after the fall of the Taliban, even threatening the life of a Pashtun warlord, a US ally, to ensure that a column of tanks could join US forces in the biggest battle of the Afghan war. Robert Ford, the sole American official for the province of Najaf in central Iraq, tries to restart the economy and deal with growing militia violence—and is taken hostage by a Shia militia. In Syria, he is chased by government thugs for defying the country’s ruler. J. Christopher Stevens is smuggled into Libya as U.S. Envoy to the rebels during its bloody civil war, then returns as ambassador only to be killed during a terror attach in Benghazi. War-zone veteran Anne Patterson is sent to Pakistan, considered the world’s most dangerous country, to broker deals that prevent a government collapse and to help guide the secret war on jihadists. Richter’s account of the role of America’s diplomats in the wars in the Middle East and the Muslim world supplies a crucial and—until now—missing part of how these wars are being fought. An important addition to appreciating the roles of these diplomats, and an in-depth look into the complexity and length of these wars and nation-building, The Ambassadors is a critical piece of modern day history.
Download or read book in PDF The Ambassadors written by Robert Cooper and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2021-02-18 with total page 576 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: History does not run in straight lines. Instead of inevitable progress, what we get is more often false starts, blind alleys, random events, good intentions that go wrong. Robert Cooper's incisive and elegant book is therefore not a continuous diplomatic history. Richelieu and Mazarin inhabited a 16th-century world we can hardly imagine today, but it is from their time that we can begin to see the outline of today's Europe. The Ambassadors includes a brilliant analysis of the people who built the Western side of the Cold War. Henry Kissinger is a pivotal figure in the post-war world, and his story is in some ways typical: he failed in his most important aims and succeeded in ways he never expected. Robert Cooper's pieces together history and considers the illuminating fragments it leaves behind.

Download or read book in PDF The Ambassadors of Glory written by Okwudili Eze and published by Ifeoma Eze. This book was released on 2018-04-28 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Glory is a weight. This is why you can’t carry it and walk normally. The expression of a man that carries glory is power. Men that manifested heavily on earth are men that had access to the weighty matters of the Spirit. It is the glory of God that connects a man to the weightiness of God. Until you become weighty in the matters of God, you cannot become weighty in the matters of men. The level of weight in the glory that one carries is what determines is place amongst men. In Greek, glory is Tozah – it means dignity and honour. You cannot carry glory without being dignified and honourable. Glory is God putting himself in you so that you can represent him in the affairs of men. It is like God putting his garment on a man because it is not right for him to appear in the earth to carry his operations by himself. So, when he puts his glory in a man, the man then acts on his behalf. And when God puts his weight on a man, the earth cannot resist him. Doors open on their own accord.

Download or read book in PDF Ambassadors at Sea written by Henry E. Catto, Jr. and published by University of Texas Press. This book was released on 2010-06-28 with total page 428 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1969, Henry Catto was selling insurance in San Antonio, Texas. Just twenty years later, he presented his credentials as ambassador to the Court of St. James's to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, at Buckingham Palace. In this engaging memoir, he retraces his journey from Texas outsider to Washington insider, providing a fascinating look at the glamour, day-to-day work, and even occasional danger that come with being a high-level representative of the United States government. Catto's posts brought him into contact with the world's most powerful leaders and left him with a wealth of stories, which he recounts amusingly in these pages. He was the official host for Queen Elizabeth's visit to America during the Bicentennial year—and one of José Napoleon Duarte's protectors after his failed 1972 coup attempt in El Salvador. Catto accompanied Richard Nixon on his historic trip to Russia, sparred with Bill Moyers and the producers of "60 Minutes" as Caspar Weinberger's spokesman at the Pentagon, and hosted George Bush's planning meeting with Margaret Thatcher at the beginning of the Persian Gulf War. In telling these and other stories, he offers behind-the-scenes glimpses into how political power really works in Washington, London, and other world capitals.

Download or read book in PDF Christ's Ambassadors written by Edward J. Jones and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2015-04-20 with total page 122 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From what we see around us, we can conclude our beloved country is going in the wrong direction. We have felt safe while Christians around the world have been suffering incredible religious persecution. It is catching up to us. There is a growing cooperative relation between the government and several private groups to repress any Christian expression. Openly practicing our faith is under attack. God has appointed His believers to be His ambassadors to this world and has called us to stand up and defend the faith (1 Peter 3:15; 2 Corinthians 5:20). This book examines the forces that resist our openly witnessing for the faith. We will examine the world, the flesh, and the Devil and look at their interaction with man. Hopefully, we will open a supportive dialogue between ambassadors. Dr. Edward Jones is a seventy-five-year-old man living in a senior complex in central Florida. He led an active life prior to 1995 when he became disabled. Writing replaced preaching. In addition to his books, he writes for the Crossroads Bible Institute and is chairmen of his church’s prison ministry. He brings to his writing a unique balance between the spiritual and the secular. His books reflect the interplay of the two. Other books include Come up Hither and The Joy of Fellowship. Christ’s Ambassadors is his third book. All his books reflect his deep commitment to Biblical inerrancy.

However,"Ambassadors of Light - Living on Light" is Jasmuheen’s tenth book and the follow on to her best seller "Living on Light - Nutrition for the New Millennium".

This also entails an in-depth look at the forgiveness of Third World debt, and at fundraising for social welfare programs through global disarmament, the dissolution of prohibition, holistic re-education programs and the elimination of the need for personal pharmaceutical use through the practice of preventative medicine.

This book was released on 2005-01-01 with total page 387 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Using recent archaeological findings and little-known archival material, Wang Zhenping introduces readers to the world of ancient Japan as it was evolving toward a centralized state. Competing Japanese tribal leaders engaged in ambassador diplomacy and actively sought Chinese support and recognition to strengthen their positions at home and to exert military influence on southern Korea. Wang brings diplomatic history to life in his descriptions of the diplomats and their personalities and literary talents as well as their ambitions and frustrations. He explains in detail the rigorous criteria of the Chinese and Japanese courts in the selection of diplomats and how the two prepared for missions abroad. He journeys with a party of Japanese diplomats from their tearful farewell party to hardship on the high seas to their arrival amidst the splendors of Yangzhou and Changan and the Sui-Tang court. The depiction of these colorful events is combined with a sophisticated analysis of premodern diplomacy using the key concept of mutual self-interest and a discussion of two major modes of diplomatic communication: court reception and the exchange of state letters. accepting, or rejecting court ceremonial arrangements.
