From soldier to diplomat to soldierMoreThe present volume continues the tale Dan Serge Vittorio began in Memoirs of a Fortunate Jew, tracing the development of his unique personality, which attracts him to ever-more eccentric and paradoxical situations. From soldier to diplomat to soldier again—via Palestine, Paris, Ethiopia, and Madagascar—Segre chronicles his encounters with other remarkable characters: a chain-smoking Golda Meir- the African leaders Tom Mboya and Julius Nyerere- Soviet diplomats and KGB agents. Suspected of being a spy, Segre is dismissed from the Foreign Ministry, official recognition of his innocence only coming a decade later. By this time, however, Segre had fully embarked on new careers as a journalist and academic. Segre’s candor, irony, intelligence, and belief are irresistible companions throughout this adventure.
