Summary
The straight-talking former ambassador takes readers behind the scenes at the State Department and the United Nations. A veteran of three Republican administrations and a nominee for the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize, Bolton reveals how the U.S. can lead the way to a more realistic global security arrangement for the 21st century and identifies the next generation of threats to America. With no-holds-barred candor, he recounts his appointment in 2005 as Ambassador to the United Nations, his Senate confirmation battle, and his sixteen-month tenure at the United Nations. Bolton offers insight into such international crises as North Korea's nuclear test, Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons and more. Recounting both his successes and frustrations, he also exposes the operational inadequacies that hinder the U.N.'s effectiveness in international diplomacy and its bias against Israel and the United States. At home, he criticizes the pernicious bureaucratic inertia in the U.S. State Department.--From publisher description
