Diplomacy, Second Edition
By: G. R. Berridge
Description: This book deals comprehensively with diplomacy narrowly conceived, that is, as the conduct of relations between sovereign states through the medium of officials based at home or abroad. It is not, like some, a book on 'diplomacy;' nor is it, like others, a book on the British Diplomatic Service disguised as a book on diplomacy in general. It is a book on the processes and procedures of the diplomatic art that focuses chiefly on the recent past but is rooted in history, and it draws on evidence and examples from across the world.
