“Richie's writing is sharp and strong. [He] introduces eight secretaries, including John Quincy Adams, Henry Kissinger, and James Baker. The profiles serve well as both personal story and historical perspective on the foreign affairs each secretary dealt with.”

Also profiled are William Seward (Alaska); John Hay (Open Door economics); Charles Evans Hughes (reduction of arms after World War I); Dean Acheson and John Foster Dulles and their anti-Soviet containment policies; and Colin Powell, secretary under George W. Bush.
