An A-to-Z lexicon of the terminology peculiar to the profession of diplomacy, including entries on legal terms, political events, international organizations, and major figures of the diplomatic scene. Though much of the language of diplomacy is based on French, the dictionary gives preference to the English version of technical terms (except where it remains conventional to employ French, e.g., charge d'affaires, force majeure). Co-author Berridge teaches international politics at the U. of Leicester, and James is emeritus professor of international relations at Keele U. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR
Diplomacy : theory and practice by Geoff Berridge( Book )

73 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diplomacy provides an introduction to the origins and different 'modes' of diplomacy within the wider context of international politics and gives special attention to negotiation." "The book is divided into two parts: the modes of diplomacy, including Bilateral and Multilateral diplomacy, Summitry and Mediation; and the Art of Negotiation, including pre-negotiation, 'across-the-table' negotiations, diplomatic momentum and packaging agreements." "Diplomacy provides comprehensive coverage of all the topics relevant to the study of diplomacy. It combines theory with details of how diplomacy and negotiation work in practice, bringing together a wide range of more specialist research to provide an accessible overview of the subject." "Diplomacy is an invaluable text for students, teachers and researchers of international politics."--Jacket

56 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

South Africa, the colonial powers and "African defence" : the rise and fall of the white entente, 1948-60 by Geoff Berridge( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes how, in the 1950s, South Africa tried to embroil Africa's colonial powers in an alliance against black nationalism, an alliance in the style of NATO and associated with it. It describes how - largely because of the contempt of British military planners for South African strategy, widespread suspicion of South Africa's intentions in the north, and fear of the consequences of being too closely identified with apartheid - Pretoria had to settle instead for an entente, and an entente, moreover, with its nose pointed at the Middle East. The book describes the elements of this entente, especially the Nairobi-Dakar system, and the multilateral 'Sea Routes' planning which was conducted at the instigation of Defence Minister Erasmus following the conclusion of the Simonstown Agreements in 1955. Finally, it describes how the entente virtually disappeared under the impact of African decolonization and the revolution in British military policy concluded by the Sandys White Paper of 1957. Generally, the book considers the argument that ententes have the advantages of alliances without their disadvantages, and suggests that this is exaggerated
Talking to the enemy : how states without diplomatic relations communicate by Geoff Berridge( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some of the most significant contacts between hostile parties, in recent years notably between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation, and between the United Kingdom and Sinn Fein, have been made of necessity by unconventional means, some of them highly secret. This book begins by looking at the extent and significance of the breakdown in normal diplomatic intercourse which has made resort to such methods unavoidable, and asks why it has occurred. It then considers the advantages and disadvantages of the different methods which states not enjoying diplomatic relations employ when they nevertheless need to communicate. These include intermediaries, disguised embassies (especially interests sections), ceremonial occasions such as 'working funerals', the diplomatic corps in third states and at the seat of international organisations, special envoys, andfollowing a breakthrough on a narrow front - joint commissions such as the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal. Drawing on a wide range of examples, not least the Sino-American rapprochement in the early 1970s, this book paints a detailed picture of the inescapability of diplomacy."--Jacket

Gerald Fitzmaurice (1865-1939), chief dragoman of the British embassy in Turkey by Geoff Berridge( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and Turkish and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerald Fitzmaurice (1865-1939) served as a dragoman in Constantinople before the First World War. Intriguer, negotiator, intelligence-gatherer, propagandist, and awe-inspiring expert on Ottoman affairs, this feverishly energetic man had exceptional influence with Turkish ministers as well as British diplomatists. Nevertheless, the 'wizard of Stamboul' left no papers or memoirs, and has remained an elusive figure. Drawing on hitherto unexploited archives, including school records and indiscreet private letters retained by others, this biography provides the first full assessment of his impact on events, often thought malign. It also throws light on the history of diplomacy, for Fitzmaurice is one of a long-neglected class: 'ministers of the second order', who paid the bribes, took the risks, and negotiated while ambassadors slept
