"William F. Buckley, Jr. is the founder of National Review and has contributed articles to most other American publications ranging from Motor Boating to The New Yorker. Author of over a dozen books beginning with God and Man at Yale, he has recently written his first novel, Saving the Queen. Mr. Buckley is perhaps best-known for his association with the weekly television show "Firing Line," which he began hosting in 1966. In 1973, William Buckley spent three months at the United Nations as the Public Member of the United States delegation to the 28th General Assembly. It is from this experience that he wrote United Nations Journal."
Obviously, the above, being written in 1977, leaves out quite a bit.
William F. Buckley, Jr. passed away yesterday at age 82.
I first read this book of his only a few years after he wrote it, while still in high school, participating in model United Nations and while doing research for a long-forgotten paper.
I believe that this book, along with Amb. Moynihan's book A Dangerous Place and Amb. Bolton's Surrender Is Not An Option, are essential reading for any American seeking understanding of American foreign policy goals and the realities our diplomatic mission faces at Turtle Bay.
