RODOLFO I. DUMAPIAS served as Philippine Ambassador to the Kingdom of Bahrain and as Consul General in various countries. A graduate from UCLA and holder of MA in International Relations from the University of Southern California, he taught in universities in Manila before his appointment as a career diplomat. In his book, Kingdom Beyond Diplomacy: Journey to the End of the Age, Ambassador Dumapias presents behind-the-scenes stories in some historical events from the end of the Cold War to the present Middle East situation. A series of life-threatening experiences during his diplomatic service led to his greater awareness of the reality of an authority higher than human sovereigns and international organizations. Writing in a simple, witty, thrilling yet entertaining mode, the author succeeds in weaving spiritual principles in a fresh perspective of today's headlines. Kingdom Beyond Diplomacy is a must-read to all decision makers, from government officials to heads of families, from leaders of organizations to young adults whose choices will determine the fate of nations and of themselves as the world comes to the End of the Age.
