About this book

Fully revised and updated, this comprehensive guide to diplomacy explores the art of negotiating international agreements and the channels through which such activities occur when states are in diplomatic relations, and when they are not. This new edition includes chapters on secret intelligence and economic and commercial diplomacy.

About the authors

G. R. Berridge is Emeritus Professor at the University of Leicester, UK, and a Senior Fellow of DiploFoundation. He was for some time general editor of Palgrave Macmillan's Studies in Diplomacy and International Relations series, and an associate editor of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography. The most recent of his many books on diplomacy is A Diplomatic Whistleblower in the Victorian Era (2013).

Reviews

''Probably the most prolific contemporary writer on diplomacy is Professor Geoff R. Berridge [ ] Each of his many books is impeccably well written and full of insights into the fascinating formation of modern diplomacy'' Robert William Dry, New York University, USA, and Chairman of AFSA's Committee on the Foreign Service Profession and Ethics

''I discovered Geoff Berridge's book on diplomacy after serving as a diplomat for over 30 years. It is well researched, sophisticated, inspiring and, where the subject invites it, suitably ironic. I used the 4th edition with my students and will now continue working with the 5th edition.'' - Dr Max Schweizer, Head of Foreign Affairs and Applied Diplomacy, ZHAW School of Management and Law, Switzerland

''Berridge's Diplomacy is an enlightening journey that takes the student, the practitioner and the general reader from the front to the backstage of current diplomatic practice. The thoroughly updated and expanded text also enriched with a stimulating new treatment of embassies is an invaluable guide to the stratagems and outcomes, continuities and innovations, of a centuries' long process.'' Arianna Arisi Rota, Professor of History of Diplomacy at the University of Pavia, Italy

''Berridge confirms with this new edition not only his profound and panoramic knowledge of diplomacy but also his very user-friendly style. No matter the expectations, the end result is an enjoyable reading experience. As a diplomat I like to think that our profession is a beautiful one, and there is no doubt that this book makes it look even better.'' Petru Dumitriu, in a review for DiploFoundation
