Dr. Alicia Campi now available through Amazon, other booksellers

The Impact of China and Russia on United States-Mongolian Political Relations in the Twentieth Century, an authoritative in-depth analysis of US-Mongolia political relations by two former diplomats, Dr. Alicia Campi and Ms. Ragchaa Baasan, will be available as of October 30 on Amazon.com, other booksellers and from the publisher, The Edwin Mellen Press, www.mellenpress.com/mellenpress.cfm?bookid=7766&pc=9

Dr. Campi, president of The Mongolia Society and of the Chinggis Khan Foundation, was a US diplomat in Tokyo during the 1980’s and played a key role in the bilateral negotiations leading up to the opening of formal US-Mongolia diplomatic relations in 1987. Ms. Baasan, a career officer in the Mongolian Foreign Ministry, served as counselor in the Mongolian Embassy in Washington, DC. She is now a scholar at Indiana University.

Advance reviews for the book are glowing. Typical of them is the comment by Professor. Robert Rupen, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who called the book "excellent" and "a unique and quite complete twentieth century diplomatic history of U.S.-Mongolian relations."
