A Lifetime Spent Crossing Cultural Frontiers
A carefree child of expatriate parents at age ten, a prisoner of the Japanese at seventeen, a valued source of intelligence to the U.S. military at nineteen, and a fervent advocate of public diplomacy throughout his long career as a Foreign Service officer, Clifton Forster spent his life crossing and recrossing frontiers, determined to use dialogue, not conflict, to solve differences between peoples and nations.
