Andrew Young: Civil Rights Ambassador

Paperback / softback
Andrew Young: Civil Rights Ambassador explores the rising influence of race in foreign relations as it examines the contributions of this African American activist, politician, and diplomat to U.S. foreign policy. Young used his positions as a member of the United States House of Representatives (1973-77), U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations (1977-79), and mayor of Atlanta during the 1980s to further the cause of race in diplomatic affairs and to bring an emphasis to United States relations with Africa. One of the few books that focuses on the influence of race in U.S. foreign policy, Andrew Young is informative reading for those interested in diplomatic history and African American history.
