Innocents Abroad: How We Won the Cold War describes the political problems faced by the United States vis-a-vis the political goals and anti-Western propaganda of the Soviet Union and its political allies in the Non-Aligned nations of the Third World in which the authors served during the Cold War. It also highlights their personal experiences as a family: the warmth of relationships they developed; the problems of both a political and personal nature that they, and in some cases their children, encountered; the unexpected adventures and serendipities that they experienced, and the problems of understanding and adapting to differing cultures and differing peoples. They were fortunate that they were thrown with those sectors of society that were involved in the changes taking place in their own nations. Their problems, mistakes and successes illustrate better than a profound study, how foreign relations are really conducted.
