Diplomacy by Adam Watson

Book Description

In the first major assessment of diplomatic dialogue since Nicolson's Diplomacy in 1939, Adam Watson traces the changing techniques of diplomacy from ancient times through the 'diplomatic society' of Europe to the present global system. In examining the conventions and institutions which help to shape the international system the author aims not so much to preserve diplomatic order which worked well in the past but rather to identify the continuities and the new conditions which will enable the dialogue to function in the future. He pays special attention to the extension of the dialogue into new fields and to the impact of the newly independent states of the third world. This leads him to argue strongly that the world's growing interdependence has increased rather than lessened the scope of diplomacy in the nuclear age.

Explains how international societies function across time. This book examines the ancient state systems and looks at the worldwide international society.

Limits of Independence by Adam Watson Limits of Independence, Paperback (October 1997)

Exploring issues of independence in Europe and beyond, this text shows how freedom of action is limited not only by a tightening net of interdependence and by the rules of international society, but also by the hegemonial authority of the strongest powers.
