0 Reviews
Provides a comprehensive survey, with many examples, of the rules, laws and conventions covering the conduct of diplomacy, not only between individual nations, but also through international organisations. The text takes into account the radical shift in the character and purpose of modern diplomacy, and the world context in which it takes place. Many small countries have achieved independence, international organisations have multiplied, diplomacy has increasingly taken on commercial and economic functions and modern communications have rendered obsolete many traditional methods and attitudes. This text is indispensable for the study of ancient and modern diplomacy and ideal for those involved in the practice of diplomacy or students of international relations.
