This is a pioneer theoretical study of diplomacy from the viewpoint of political science. It defines diplomacy precisely, and distinguishes it from the other institutions with which it is often confused. The work commences with a historical analysis of diplomacy through the ages in order to afford a theoretical description of the concept. After defining the term, Calvet de Magalhaes goes on to examine the value of current ideas concerning diplomacy. He also describes deviations from normal diplomatic practice, such as backchannel diplomacy, combat diplomacy, and espionage. The work concludes with a detailed precis of the different elements of diplomatic activity.

Force and Diplomacy in the Future

Author: Stephen J. Cimbala

Publisher: Praeger Publishers

ISBN: N.A

Category: Political Science

This study assesses the post-Cold War international environment in terms of its implications for the relationship between force and policy. Based on a retrospective look at U.S., NATO, and Soviet doctrine, Cimbala asserts that informed speculation about the post-Cold War world requires a sense of connection to the historical past. He believes that issues with which Europe was forced to deal prior to World War II will reappear in the aftermath of a socially reconstructed Soviet Union, a defunct Warsaw Pact, and a newly reunited Germany. Nationalism and economic competition will contend for the attention of policymakers along with traditional security issues for the remainder of the 1990s and thereafter.

(The authors') goal in writing (the book) was to provide the student with a thorough introduction to the theoretical premises, historical setting, structure and process, and most important contemporary issues of world politics. A consistent theme is the extent to which the interstate system itself is being challenged by the changes we explore. (They) also chose to write a text that clearly intertwined empirical knowledge about the subject matter of world politics with the normative choices that confront decision makers and private citizens. -Pref.

Foundations of Cultural Diplomacy

Politics Among Cultures and the Moral Autonomy of Man

This original, systematic theory of cultural diplomacy opens a new way of thinking about diplomacy, politics and culture. Dr. Laos methodically investigates the relationship between culture and politics and between the reality of the world and the reality of consciousness. In so doing, he articulates a new approach to international relations theory and the concept of power, one based on philosophical arguments about reality, history and freedom.Dr. Laos takes a stark and realistic look at the interplay between culture and politics and makes an intellectually challenging contribution to normative international relations theory. The author proposes a new way of defining 'critical' political theory (substantially different from the Frankfurt School's approach) which leads to a new, dynamic understanding of history, and he argues that the chessboard of power is not so much on the surface of the earth as in the mental network formed by the communication between consciousnesses.He presents an original explanation of the inherent inability of Realpolitik to account for reality, throwing light on deep and controversial questions of identity for Europe and the West in general.
