This book spans more than 200 years of U.S. diplomatic history. Its geographical scope widens along with the expanding interests of America itself, from initial exclusive concern with the empires of Europe, to the emerging nations of Latin America, to the commercial opportunities and geopolitical concerns of Asia and Africa. The ambassadors chosen for inclusion reflect these historical changes in American foreign relations. Organized alphabetically, the biographies present an implicit account of the evolution of the U.S. diplomatic service, from its founding and early principles through the 20th century evolution of its habits and culture.

?The 58 historical-biographical profiles in this work reflect the highest representation of American diplomacy. The alphabetically arranged entries are four to eight pages each and capture an array of foreign concerns and many domestic issues.... The writing is lively and enables users to easily gain needed biographical information as well as a clear understanding of why each person is included. The contributors point out changes in the positions of the diplomat and the nation and bring forward the pressures the ambassadors worked under or which affected them after their assignments. A valuable side benefit is awareness of how fortunate the U.S. has been with such dedicated representation. Compared with [other sources], Notable U.S. Ambassadors since 1775 is much more complete, up to date in research, and superior in providing a deeper understanding. Highly recommended for academic and medium to large public libraries.?-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin
