About this Textbook

This textbook, the first comprehensive comparative study ever undertaken, surveys and compares the world’s ten largest diplomatic services: those of Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Russia, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Chapters cover the distinctive histories and cultures of the services, their changing role in foreign policy making, and their preparations for the new challenges of the twenty-first century.

Reviews

“An invaluable resource that illuminates not only the state of modern diplomacy, but also the prospects for its renewal in this moment of global testing.” (Ambassador William J. Burns, President, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace)

“Foreign policy experts and readers broadly interested in the geopolitics of the early XXI Century will find Modern Diplomacy in Practice an informative and insightful guide to today´s multipolar international scenario. As a career diplomat, I fully subscribe to the conclusion that the need for diplomacy has never been greater in order to sustain a functioning international system.” (Ambassador Antonio Patriota, former Foreign Minister of Brazil)

“This comparative analysis of foreign services comes at the right time. For practitioners and students of diplomacy alike it is essential to know how select services have developed over time and how they react to current challenges like globalization and digitalization.” (Ambassador Emily Haber, German Ambassador to the United States)

“At a time when diplomacy is more important than ever, this helpful and important volume explores its strengths and weaknesses as deployed by major states. Sadly, many countries including the US, underfund this vital power resource.” (Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Harvard University, and author of Do Morals Matter? Presidents and Foreign Policy from FDR to Trump)
