About the book

In the decades following World War II, Australia fostered close relations with many nations, most newly independent, throughout the world, especially in Asia, the Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.

Richard Gate, a member of Australia's fledgling diplomatic service from the late 1950s, had postings in Korea, Nauru, Israel, Kenya (with accreditation also to Ethiopia and Uganda), Burma, Jordan and Bangladesh, as well as Italy and New Zealand. In the elegant essays that compose this volume, he recalls his sojourns in each of these countries, illuminating both the professional life of a diplomat and the benefits as well as the burdens of foreign service.

About the author

Richard Gate was born in Brisbane in 1933 and educated in Canberra, New York and the University of Melbourne and Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand. He entered the Department of External Affairs in 1956 and retired in 1993. He lives in Canberra and is now a community radio broadcaster. His publications include Politics, Diplomacy and Islam: Four case studies (jointly), From Coup to Coup and articles on music, art and current affairs in Australian and English publications.
