American Diplomats in Russia: Case Studies in Orphan Diplomacy, 1916-1919(1997)
Prior to employment at Georgia Southern University, William T. Allison authored American Diplomats in Russia: Case Studies in Orphan Diplomacy, 1916-1919.
Book Summary: Anti-Bolshevism, the Allied war effort, German domination, American hegemony--these issues and many more occupied the daily activities of American diplomats in revolutionary Russia. Left with little instruction from Washington and often exposed to danger, the American diplomats took it upon themselves to deal with the chaotic situation. In this unique study, Allison looks at the careers of specific diplomats and at their personal and political agendas, showing how their prejudices often biased their judgment and influenced their actions.
