Description:

InDiplomacy in a Globalizing World: Theories and Practices,twenty-three esteemed scholars contribute to the debate about the changing nature of contemporary diplomacy and its future theoretical and practical implications. Filling a gap in the foreign policy textbook market, this unique volume balances breadth with depth and theory with practice, illustrating through cutting-edge comparative analyses that twenty-first century diplomacy is best understood as "complex diplomacy." The selections analyze diplomacy's historical and contemporary developments; Western and non-Western diplomatic theories and practices; sociological and political theories of diplomacy; and various diplomatic structures, processes and instruments, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, public diplomacy, bilateral and multilateral diplomacy, and intelligence. The text is enhanced by numerous pedagogical tools.
