Katherine L. Hughes - The Accidental Diplomat : Dilemmas of the Trailing Spouse, 1998
From the time Thomas Jefferson declared that America should send ambassadors around the
globe, the life of Foreign Service officers has been seen as one of status and glamour.
For many veteran officers and spouses, this remains true. But to a whole new generation of
spouses life in the Foreign Service can represent an almost total loss of the economic
freedom and self- determination they had learned to take for granted. These spouses find
themselves swept into an institutionalized role as unpaid adjuncts to their husbands. The
phenomenon is not limited to the Foreign Service, as more and more corporate spouses find
themselves facing similar dilemmas. As increasing numbers of Americans are sent overseas
by their employers, the term "trailing spouse" is becoming more common than
ever. The dilemmas are particularly acute for dual-career couples, whether in the Foreign
Service, the military, or business.
As Diplomat : Il Duce's Italy on the World Stage, 1999
Maria Pinto Carland (Editor), Michael Trucano (Editor), - Careers in International Affairs, 1999.
Eric Kocher, Nina Segal - International Jobs : Where They Are, How to Get Them, 1999
Newly updated and extensively revised, this new edition of the popular reference provides all the information job-seekers need to navigate the rapidly changing, increasingly complex 21st-century international job market.
Durrel Huff, - How to lie with statistics, 1993.
Huff shows a good selection of the methods by which numbers can be made to say something different than the actual data would support. He looks at presentation, correlations, collection of data, sample size, sample bias, and other critical factors which can enter into the validity of statistics and of the conclusions we try to draw from them. All of the material is written in a clear, interesting manner which will be easy for the layperson to comprehend and apply.
