The Professional Diplomat
John Ensor Harr

Editions

The role of the Foreign Service Officer of the United States altered radically during and after World War II. John Harr, who served as a staff member of the Commission on Foreign Affairs Personnel in 1962 and as Director of the Office of Management Planning in the State Department for four years, describes the changes and the response of the Foreign Service Corps to them. He provides a direct approach to the understanding of the professional diplomat and of the pervasive force of professionalism in modern American society. He also outlines managerial strategy to meet the growth challenge of the future.

First published in 1969.
