Summary

Called “one of the three most successful envoys to South America during the nation’s first 150 years,” Buchanan served under four presidents.

“This readable biography will be of interest to a wide range of specialists, and it serves to demonstrate the shifting concerns of American diplomacy during the years of the Republic’s initial outward thrust.” — Pacific Historical Review
