Modern diplomacy is all too often seen simply as the existence of a country's embassies throughout the world, serving merely to aid expatriates in distress and to facilitate communication and cultural exchange between nations. This book explores not just the development of the international embassy system, but also seeks to trace the rise and progression of diplomacy - and what it has entailed - from the sixteenth century onwards. In 'A History of Diplomacy', historian Jeremy Black investigates how a form of courtly negotiation and information-gathering in the early modern period developed through increasing globalization into a world-shaping force in twenty-first-century politics. The monarchic systems of the sixteenth century are seen to have progressed into the increasingly colonial concerns of European nations, which in turn were shaken by the revolutionary turbulence of the eighteenth century. Concluding with the ideological diplomatic conflicts of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, Black charts the course and evolution of 'diplomacy' in all of its incarnations. The role of modern international Non-Governmental Organizations in diplomatic relations is assessed, and the challenges facing diplomacy in the future are identified and investigated. 'A History of Diplomacy' presents a detailed and engaging study into the ever-changing phenomenon of diplomacy: its aims, its achievements, its successes and failures, against a historical and cultural background. An essential read for students and scholars of history and politics, it will also be of interest to anyone intrigued by the forces that have shaped international relations throughout history.
