The practice of diplomacy : its evolution, theory, and administration by Keith Hamilton( Book )

60 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the post Cold War, the role of diplomacy has visibly expanded in much more unstable international conditions. This is partly because more complex relationships between a larger number of power centers have emerged including non-governmental organizations as well as states. These developments are adding to the machinery of diplomacy expanding the number of topics of negotiation and modifying the established character of diplomacy in significant ways. This book explores the historical development of diplomacy from the earliest times and shows how it has grown and adapted its methods to the needs of previous international environments. It follows these developments from the late twentieth century and concludes that while diplomacy techniques have adapted in response to very new needs and technological advances in communication, the activity itself remains inevitable and has never been more important.--Publisher description

This volume of essays focuses upon Britain's international and imperial role from the mid-Victorian era through until the immediate aftermath of the Second World War. Individual chapters by acknowledged authorities in their field deal with a variety of broad-ranging and particular issues, including: 'cold wars' before the Cold War in Anglo-Russian relations; Lord Curzon and the diplomacy of war and peace-making; air-power as an instrument of colonial control; Foreign Office efforts to frame and influence the historical narrative; Winston Churchill's alternative to, and the pursuit of, policies of 'appeasement'; British responses to conflict and regime change in Spain; the Secret Intelligence Service and British diplomacy in East Asia'; Neville Chamberlain and the 'phoney war'; efforts to combat American misperceptions of Britain in wartime; and British-American differences over the future of Italy's colonial possessions. This collection, along with the accompanying volume covering the period after World War 2, is dedicated to the memory of Professor Saki Dockrill

Servants of diplomacy : a domestic history of the Victorian Foreign Office by Keith Hamilton( )

8 editions published between 2021 and 2022 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Servants of Diplomacy offers a bottom-up history of the 19th-century Foreign Office and in doing so, provides a ground-breaking study of modern British diplomacy. Whilst current literature focuses on the higher echelons of the Office, Keith Hamilton sheds a new light on the administrative and social history of Whitehall which have, until now, been largely ignored"--
Documents on British policy overseas( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing upon previously unpublished records of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Cabinet Office and the Ministry of Defence, this book focuses upon Britain's role in the early stages of the Mutual and Balanced Force Reductions (MBFR) talks in Vienna, and British policy towards the Soviet Union and its European satellites during an era of detente in East-West relations. The documents reveal both the suspicions of senior Whitehall officials regarding Soviet designs in Europe, and their doubts about the negotiating tactics and strategy of their American allies. With Washington still reeling from the Vietnam debacle, British diplomats initially saw the MBFR talks as a mechanism for helping the Nixon administration to stave off Congressional demands for cuts in US forces in Europe. They dismissed as a 'pipe dream' the notion that reductions in Western manpower numbers could be compatible with undiminished security for all, but hoped through participation in the talks to forestall any unnecessary weakening of NATO." --Book Jacket

9 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covers three inter-related themes: Britain's entry into the European Community and its effect on the transatlantic relationship; the 1973 Arab-Israeli war; and the impact of the energy crisis on inter-allied relations. Focusing primarily upon intra-allied relations, this text also traces the evolution of the transatlantic relationship during Britain's first year in the European Community. The papers cover British reactions to Henry Kissinger's attempt to redefine America's link with Europe through his "Year of Europe" initiative, the energy crisis and the fourth Arab/Israeli War of October 1973, shed new light on some of the more occult aspects of President Nixon's diplomacy, and reveal the problems faced by Edward Heath's government in seeking to maintain its close ties with Washington while trying to establish its credentials as a fully committed EC member state
