Mongolia and the United States: A Diplomatic History (Adst-Dacor Diplomats and Diplomacy Series)
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This in-depth study, which also includes personal observations by six of Addleton's seven predecessors, goes beyond the tradition of diplomatic memoirs in that it is a well-researched and detailed, but eminently readable, review of American impact on Mongolia's rapidly modernizing nomadic society. It will be the inspiration for further analysis of the post--Cold War American policies of democratic nationbuilding, free market promotion, and people-to-people contact in a country whose mineral-rich economy is emerging as a leader in Northeast Asia.

Su questo libro:
Former U.S. ambassador Jonathan Addleton provides a pioneering firsthand look at the remarkable growth of civil society and diplomatic ties between two countries separated by vast distances yet sharing a growing list of strategic interests and values. While maintaining positive ties with Russia and China, its powerful neighbors and still-dominant trading partners, Mongolia has sought "third neighbors" to help provide balance, including Canada, Japan, Korea, European nations, and the United States. For its part, the United States has supported Mongolia as an emerging democracy while fostering development and commercial relations. People-to-people ties have significantly expanded in recent years, as has a security partnership that supports Mongolia's emergence as a provider of military peacekeepers under the U.N. flag in Sierra Leone, Chad, Kosovo, Darfur, South Sudan, and elsewhere.
While focusing on diplomatic relations over the last quarter century, Addleton also briefly describes American encounters with Mongolia over the past 150 years. More recently, Mongolia has emerged as a magnet for foreign investment, making it one of the world's fastest growing economies.
Jonathan S. Addleton served in Mongolia as USAID mission director (2001--2004) and then as U.S. ambassador (2009--2012). His previous assignments included development counselor at the U.S. Mission to the European Union in Brussels; USAID mission director in Pakistan and Cambodia; and USAID program officer in Jordan, Kazakhstan, South Africa, and Yemen. He is the author of Undermining the Center: The Gulf Migration and Pakistan and Some Far and Distant Place. In 2012, he was awarded the Polar Star, Mongolia's highest civilian honor conferred on foreign citizens, for his role in strengthening ties between the United States and Mongolia.
