Editorial Reviews

"[This book] showcases a master in the analysis of modern diplomacy at work. All of the essays are compellingly, wittily, and at times beautifully written in a way which makes them accessible to the expert and general reader alike. The quality of the book is first class." -- Paul Sharp, Professor of Political Science, University of Minnesota Duluth, USA
