A revealing account of the last 50 years of world affairs as seen by one of Australia's most successful diplomats, through the Cold War atmosphere and beyond. A trusted confidant of prime ministers and foreign ministers, Woolcott played a crucial role in some of the pivotal moments of the 20th century: the creation of the Asia-Pacific Economic Forum (APEC), the decolonisation process of Southeast Asia, and the maintenance of the Antarctic Treaty. Leavened with wry and amusing anecdotes, “The Hot Seat” reveals the complicated, demanding, wonderfully rich experiences of diplomatic life.'No Australian diplomat I have known combines a greater range of experience and breadth of contacts, especially in-but not limited to-Southeast Asia, as does Richard Woolcott.'-Henry Kissinger
