The Architecture of Diplomacy

The British Ambassador's Residence in Washington

Washington DC’s Embassy Row, an avenue of unrivaled diplomatic importance, is anchored by the British ambassador’s residence, a massive neoclassical English country house—the haunt of kings and queens and countless other royalty and luminaries since 1930, including long visits by Winston Churchill during World War II, when England faced her darkest hours against the Nazis. With many dozens of historical photos of politicians and statesmen, as well as beautiful contemporary shots of the building’s interior, exterior, and gardens, this is the book to whet the whimsies of anyone who cares a whit about history, architecture, Anglo-American diplomacy, gardening, and exactly how to do a perfect coffee-table book.
