ADST assists in the publication of books pertaining to diplomacy and the Foreign Service. We have two primary publication series, which are listed below. Books may be purchased directly from ADST, from the books’ publishers, or from online booksellers..


ADST-DACOR Diplomats and Diplomacy Series

The ADST-DACOR Diplomats and Diplomacy Series: For more than 225 years extraordinary men and women have represented the United States abroad under all kinds of circumstances. What they did and how and why they did it are not well known to their compatriots. In 1996 the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training (ADST) and DACOR, an organization of foreign affairs professionals, created a book series to increase public knowledge and appreciation of the involvement of American diplomats in the events of world history. The series seeks to demystify diplomacy by telling the story of those who have conducted our foreign relations, as they saw them and lived them.


ADST-Memoirs and Occasional Papers Series

ADST-Memoirs and Occasional Papers Series: ADST created the Memoirs and Occasional Papers Series to preserve firsthand accounts, histories, and other informed observations on foreign affairs for scholars, journalists, and the general public.
