This book is Jamsheed Marker’s recollection, mostly from memory, of his varied diplomatic career in some of the world’s most important capitals, and of travels that took him from the frozen wastes of Siberia and the Arctic to the desert sands of the Sahara.
Jamsheed Marker is a veteran Pakistani diplomat. He was Pakistan’s top envoy to the United States and more than a dozen other countries for more than three decades.
This book should be read by everyone interested in a better understanding of Pakistan’s History, as well as global diplomacy.

He was Pakistan’s ambassador to nineteen different countries as well as to the United Nations over a period of nearly thirty years. He lived through momentous times. With characteristic finesse, he championed Pakistan’s cause in some of the great capitals of the world. Quiet Diplomacy is a ‘must read’ for historians, diplomats and for those who value literature.
