America’s Other Army brings the high-flying world of international diplomacy down to earth and puts a human face on a mysterious profession that has undergone a dramatic transformation since September 11, 2001. Through the stories of American diplomats, author Nicolas Kralev explains how their work affects millions of people in the United States and around the world every day, and how it contributes directly to U.S. security and prosperity. He shows a more inclusive American diplomacy that has moved beyond interacting with governments and has engaged with the private sector, civil society and individual citizens as well. Having visited more than 50 embassies and interviewed nearly 600 American diplomats, Kralev reveals a Foreign Service whose diversity and professional versatility have shattered old perceptions and redefined modern diplomacy. But he also depicts a service not fully equipped to address the complex challenges of the 21st Century. 


Nicholas Kralev is a journalist and lecturer on diplomacy, international affairs and global travel as well as a contributor to The Atlantic and Foreign Policy Magazine. A former Financial Times and Washington Times correspondent, he has traveled around the world with four U.S. Secretaries of State and visited more than 80 countries. He holds a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and is fluent in five languages.
