This collection of essays examines the diplomatic corps as an institution of international society. Contributors include both leading scholars from the field of diplomatic studies, serving diplomats, and scholar-diplomats. The central argument of the volume is that the diplomatic corps provides one of the few unambiguous ways by which an international society is constituted and finds expression. As the chapters show, however, what this means precisely varies hugely by setting and circumstance.
