Reviews

"Lively, shrewd, bursting with reforming ideas, and refreshingly informed by a vast knowledge of current diplomatic practice in Asia and Africa as well as in the West, this is a particularly valuable new book [...] The embassy, Kishan S. Rana argues persuasively, is actually 'in renaissance.'" - G. R. Berridge, Emeritus Professor of International Politics, University of Leicester, UK

"The Contemporary Embassy is by far the best and most comprehensive study now available of the way nations practice diplomacy abroad. It burnishes Ambassador Rana's well-established credentials as an outstanding analyst of present-day diplomatic process. I plan to use it on my course in diplomacy." - Howard B. Schaffer, Georgetown University, USA and Former U.S. Ambassador
