Full Title
In Those Days: A Diplomat Remembers

This is a candid, often funny, autobiography of a 20th century American diplomat who spent most of his life in high-level diplomacy in Asia and Africa. The story takes Jim Spain from an Irish Catholic childhood in gangster-era Chicago, through military service as Douglas MacArthur's photographer in occupied Japan, and university life at Chicago and a Ph.D. from Columbia. His Foreign Service career brought postings in Islamabad, Istanbul, Ankara and four ambassadorships in Tanzania, Turkey, the United Nations (as deputy permanent representative), and Sri Lanka.

In retirement, James W. Spain is actively engaged in organizing a power and irrigation project in Sri Lanka.
