Professor Michael Rocklands first career was in diplomacy, serving with our embassies in Argentina and in Spain as a cultural attaché. One of the latest of his books is An American Diplomat in Franco Spain and he has long taught the course, The United States as Seen From Abroad at Rutgers. Thus, diplomacy has been both his vocation and his avocation for many years. In lecturing on American diplomacy he endeavors to trace the evolution of the United States from a nation dedicated to George Washingtons argument in favor of no entangling alliances to a nation that has, in some instances, gone in the other direction.
