|This acclaimed history of America's overseas embassy-building program is now available in paperback in a revised and expanded edition. Addressing the security concerns posed by embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, Jane C. Loeffler continues her clear and often charged story of how America presents itself abroad, trying to balance an open and welcoming political philosophy with increasing concern for security in a world beset by terrorism. The Architecture of Diplomacy will appeal to anybody interested in American history and the complicated issue of representing political power through building.|
