Diplomacy in a Globalizing World
Theories and Practicesav Pauline Kerr619Skickas inom 10-15 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.In Diplomacy in a Globalizing World: Theories and Practices, twenty-three respected scholars contribute to the debate about the changing nature of contemporary diplomacy and its future theoretical and practical directions. Filling a gap in the diplomacy textbook market, this unique volume balances breadth with depth and theory with practice, using cutting-edge comparisons to show that twenty-first century diplomacy is best understood as "complex diplomacy."
The book analyzes 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, such as the ministry of foreign affairs, public diplomacy,
bilateral and multilateral diplomacy, and intelligence. Numerous pedagogical tools enhance the text.
Complementing the pedagogical features contained in the text, a comprehensive Companion Website for students and instructors will provide additional learning tools including glossary exercises, take-home messages, "big" questions for further consideration, quizzes, term-paper topics, essay and test questions, web links, case-study references, counter-factual reasoning exercises, guides to further reading, and a 15-week teaching course based on the book.

<br>"With major power relativities shifting, and 'problems without passports' multiplying, diplomacy--and in particular cooperative multilateral diplomacy--has never been more complex, nor more important to get right. Scholars and practitioners alike should be grateful to have a guide through the maze as informative and thought provoking as this very professionally edited volume."--Gareth Evans, Chancellor of The Australian National University, President Emeritus of the International Crisis Group, and former Australian Foreign Minister<p><br>"This is an impressive new textbook. Professors and students will find it useful in multidimensional ways. It gives judicious weight to history, theory, and contemporary practice. It also addresses diplomacy's globalizing trends, complemented by strong treatment of regional diplomacies, including that of a 'rising Asia.'"--Kantathi Suphamongkhon, 39th Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Thailand, presently Senior Fellow at the Burkle Center for International Relations and Visiting Professor at UCLA<p><br>"I know of no books that compete with this book's currency, depth, and breadth. It is a collection of thoughtful, provocative, and cutting-edge essays--written for a new generation of students and diplomacy practitioners. If your goal is to understand twenty-first century diplomacy, it is essential reading."--Bruce Gregory, George Washington University<p><br>"Diplomacy in a Globalizing World is very appropriate for political science and international relations courses, something that is currently missing from the current crop of texts. It is not only very topical in terms of understanding the world of the twenty-first century, but also incorporates the advances in international relations theory that have made many of the other works obsolete."--Bruce Cronin, City College of New York<p><br>"Diplomacy in a Globalizing World" is an important new book that brings needed focus to an often-neglected component of internationa
