Former U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad on a Lifetime of Diplomacy in the Middle East

Former U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad on a Lifetime of Diplomacy in the Middle East

Zalmay Khalilzad has been a student of international relations for at least 40 years - longer if you consider his time as an Afghan exchange student in a California high school and his education at the University of Chicago. From 2003 to 2009, he served as the U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan, then Iraq, and finally, the United Nations. In The Envoy: From Kabul to the White House, My Journey Through a Turbulent World, he shares details about his personal life and offers his insight on foreign policy and the social and political events currently unfolding in the Middle East.
