In Diplomacy in a Globalizing World: Theories and Practices, twenty-three respected scholars contribute to the debate about the changing nature of contemporary diplomacy and its future theoretical and practical directions. Filling a gap in the diplomacy textbook market, this unique volume balances breadth with depth and theory with practice, using cutting-edge comparisons to show that twenty-first century diplomacy is best understood as "complex diplomacy."The book analyzes diplomacy's historical and contemporary developments; Western and non-Western diplomatic theories and practices; sociological and political theories of diplomacy; and various diplomatic structures, processes, and instruments, such as the ministry of foreign affairs, public diplomacy,bilateral and multilateral diplomacy, and intelligence. Numerous pedagogical tools enhance the text.Coming Soon!Complementing the pedagogical features contained in the text, a comprehensive Companion Website for students and instructors will provide additional learning tools including glossary exercises, take-home messages, "big" questions for further consideration, quizzes, term-paper topics, essay and test questions, web links, case-study references, counter-factual reasoning exercises, guides to further reading, and a 15-week teaching course based on the book.
