CHOICE Review

Barston (formerly UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, now, Univ. of Cardiff) has extensive diplomatic experience. His second edition is extensively updated and expanded, with several new chapters covering environmental diplomacy, mediation, the process of normalization, and case studies of environmental negotiations and international agreements. The craft of persuasion and the reconciliation of conflicting interests have become much more difficult and diverse with continued expansion of the international community, alterations in major political groupings, and ongoing efforts to attain minimum levels of international order. After a chapter that examines the changing nature of diplomacy since the early 1960s, part 1 (of four) deals with organization, representation, diplomatic correspondence, and assessments. Part 2 examines negotiation and diplomatic methods; part 3 looks at diplomacy through international financial relations, trade, environment, security, mediation, and normalization. The fourth part concerns the use and development of international treaties and agreements. A concise concluding chapter summarizes the several features of transition in modern diplomacy. Barston emphasizes the experimental and short-term nature of solutions, especially in areas such as international debt, security, and civil conflict. No doubt, stability remains elusive; it is, however, the essence of diplomacy to search for orderly change. An important reference source for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students of international relations and foreign policy analysis. R. M. Bigler; University of Nevada, Las Vegas
