His new memoir chronicles four lively years as a cultural attache at the US Embassy in Spain in the 1960's including meeting Martin Luther King.
"Michael Rockland's accounts of his unusual experiences while he and I served with the American Embassy in Spain are amusing and illuminating--the most interesting is his tale of the hydrogen bombs that the U.S. inadvertently dropped on Spain and in waters off the coast. This book will appeal to American and Spanish audiences."
