About the Book

Harry Geisel likens his life to that of “Selig,” Woody Allen’s character who keeps showing up as an unknown little man in historic scenes. A long-time Foreign Service manager, Geisel had scenes in U.S. diplomatic history that included the Cold War, the South African anti-apartheid struggle, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the birth of the new Russia, and China’s development as a great power.

In this series of very colorful and candid interviews, Ambassador Geisel describes his life in providing backstage support to U.S. foreign policy.
