About the Book
Hard work, lots of reading, factory jobs took me from a poor, uneducated family, through BS and MA, then on to intelligence work. Twenty-nine years of postings at Embassies in Africa, Europe and Australia. Short stories illuminate poor family background, great curiosity and wide range of reading, work in intelligence and at posts abroad. A bit of history frames some stories including social, military, political, racial conflicts/conditions in countries abroad. Some notes on terrorism, Communism and spying.
