American Diplomacy E-Journal

The online journal American Diplomacy was launched in September 1996 under the auspices of TUSS (as TISS was then known). It was founded by two retired U.S. Foreign Service officers, Dr. Henry Mattox (a TUSS post-doctoral fellow) and Ambassador Frank Crigler. Dr. Richard Kohn, Executive Secretary of TUSS was among the eight Charter members of the journal’s Board of Directors. TISS officials still serve on this Board as well as the editorial review panel. The goal of its founders – to publish thoughtful articles on international issues, to support efforts to strengthen the American Foreign Service, and to promote understanding of the challenges of diplomatic life abroad – reinforces our own mission and we warmly encourage you to log on, explore the site, and subscribe as members.
