A book discussion with journalist and author, Nicholas Kralev.

Can the following duties be required by the same profession: Teaching effective governance, participating in nuclear negotiations, organizing cultural events, reforming child-adoption systems, selling weapons, recovering from natural disasters, promoting U.S. business, issuing passports and visas, setting up counterterrorism programs, resettling refugees, visiting prisoners, and fixing public relations problems? Yes, they can — welcome to the U.S. Foreign Service.
