William Burns, “The Back Channel: A Memoir of American Diplomacy and a Case for Its Renewal”
In more than three decades as an American diplomat, William Burns played a central role in the most consequential diplomatic episodes of his time— from post–9/11 tumult in the Middle East to the secret nuclear talks with Iran. Drawing on a trove of newly declassified cables and memos, Burns gives readers a rare inside look at American diplomacy in action. “The Back Channel” is an eloquent, deeply informed, and timely story of a life spent in service of American interests abroad. It is also a powerful reminder, in a time of great turmoil, of the enduring importance of diplomacy.
