The Cold War officially ended in 1991 and opened a world of fresh opportunities for the Peace Corps. The fact that PCVs could move seamlessly into a constellation of states that once comprised the USSR is a testament to the flexibility and durability of the organization.

Note: This book is a duplicate entry in Goodreads. It is also listed with a fragment of its title, Peace Corps @ 50 by Jay Chen. That entry predates this one and it has more reviews.

If you've never heard of the Peace Corps, this volume will not educate you about the organization.

If you're already in the Peace Corps, you have better stories than these already.
