About the Book

For more than 230 years, extraordinary men and women have represented the United States abroad with courage and dedication. Yet their accomplishments in promoting and protecting American interests remain little known to their compatriots. The Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training (ADST) created the Diplomatic Oral History Series to help fill this void by publishing in book form selected transcripts of interviews from its Foreign Affairs Oral History Collection. The text contained herein acquaints readers with the distinguished service of the Honorable Keith C. Smith as a career Foreign Service officer, special adviser to the Government of Estonia, and Ambassador to Lithuania. We are proud to make his interview available through the Diplomatic Oral History Series.
