(From the publisher):
Written originally as a travel diary, Sketches from a Life is George F. Kennan's peerless, impressionistic record of his experiences with twentieth-century history. Beginning with his first foreign service post in 1927 and ending seven decades later, Kennan's account is rich with the insight of a major historical participant. Whether describing the brutalities of Hitler's Germany, the perils of life under Stalin, or his days as ambassador to the Soviet Union, Sketches from a Life is as riveting as great literature, and one of the most valuable memoirs of our time.
