9781861896964: A History of Diplomacy

 

In A History of Diplomacy, historian Jeremy Black investigates how a form of courtly negotiation and information-gathering in the early modern period developed through increasing globalization into a world-shaping force in twenty-first-century politics. The monarchic systems of the sixteenth century gave way to the colonial development of European nations—which in turn were shaken by the revolutions of the eighteenth century—the rise and progression of multiple global interests led to the establishment of the modern-day international embassy system. In this detailed and engaging study of the ever-changing role of international relations, the aims, achievements, and failures of foreign diplomacy are presented along with their complete historical and cultural background.

About the Author :

Jeremy Black is professor of history at the University of Exeter. He is the author of more than eighty books, including Maps and Politics, Why Wars Happen, War since 1945, Britain since the Seventies, and Altered States: America since the Sixties, all published by Reaktion Books.

Review :

 “An ambitious, innovative and remarkably wide-ranging survey by a historian of formidable breadth.”

(BBC History Magazine)

 “Thought-provoking and usefully targeted to the questions of today.”

(Times Literary Supplement)

“[A] spirited defense of traditional diplomacy . . . a history of the profession, but with an alternative focus, looking at modern diplomacy’s non-Western traditions and its roots in the medieval West. It provides fascinating details along the way about the development of embassies, envoys, and give-and-take or 19th century statesmanship. It almost made me want to rejoin the trade—except in a time capsule.”

(Eamon Delaney Irish Times)

“Using illuminating, sometimes fascinating examples and an easy-going style, he describes the development of embassies and the self-taught skills of their envoys all the way up to the zenith of statesmanship, the nineteenth century . . . beyond merely demonstrating the forces that have shaped international relations today, Professor Black delivers a clarion call for today’s diplomats to not forsake their traditional skills and functions in favor of easy sound bites.”

(Diplomat)

“Black’s analysis is scholarly and perceptive. It refreshes in its diversity. It reminds us that diplomacy was active and eventful before developments in 15th century Italy led us to the regular practice of resident diplomacy.”

(Asian Affairs)

“Jeremy Black’s book provides a highly effective tour d’horizon of the practice of diplomacy to date, as well as indicating its future longevity.”

(International Affairs)

 “Jeremy Black brings together a wide ranging body of knowledge to produce a powerful defense of the traditional academic discipline of diplomatic history. In so doing he also demonstrates the continuing importance and relevance of diplomacy in the changing conditions of the modern world.”

(John Clark, University of Buckingham)

Description du livre Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In A History of Diplomacy, historian Jeremy Black challenges the conventional account of the development of diplomacy, devoting more attention to non-Western traditions and to the medieval West than is usually the case. By the nineteenth century a system of diplomacy was increasingly formalized. Black charts the course and evolution of diplomacy in all its incarnations, concluding with the ideological diplomatic conflicts of the twentieth century and the situation today. The role of modern inter- and non-governmental organizations - from the United Nations and NATO to Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch - in diplomatic relations is assessed, and the challenges facing diplomacy in the future are identified and investigated. A History of Diplomacy presents a detailed and engaging study into the ever-changing phenomenon of diplomacy: its aims, its achievements, its successes and failures, against a historical and cultural background. An essential read for students and scholars of history and politics, it will also be of interest to anyone intrigued by the forces that have shaped international relations throughout history.
