As is our custom, we will be taking a welcome summer break from publishing American Diplomacy every two weeks. Our last issue before the summer break is this one on June 21. We will resume our regular schedule with the September 6 issue. We wish you a pleasant summer with much good reading, including the many books we have reviewed in this and previous issues.
Contributions in the form of commentaries and analyses, Foreign Service life vignettes, reader comments, Internet article, spoken word and book reviews will be welcome throughout the summer. Please submit them as usual to for the September 6 and subsequent issues.
