Concepts of Non-Provocative Defence by Geoffrey Wiseman

Book Description

This book examines the viability of non-provocative defence - the controversial idea that defensive military policies and practices reduce the risk of wars and provide a viable basis for defending a society should war break out. Drawing on case studies from Europe, the 1991 Persian Gulf War, and Asia-Pacific, the author concludes that non-provocative defence concepts remain relevant and that they can help in deterring, conducting, and settling wars.

Diplomatic Corps as an Institution of International Society by Geoffrey Wiseman Diplomatic Corps as an Institution of International Society, Hardback (December 2007)

This collection of essays, from leading scholars and serving diplomats, examines the diplomatic corps as an institution of international society. The central argument is that the diplomatic corps provides one of the few unambiguous ways by which an international society is constituted and finds expression.
