The study of diplomacy - in many respects the 'engine room' of international relations - has been marked by a revitalisation in recent years. This three-volume collection is the first to bring together the seminal writings in the field to provide a unique reference work on this essential institution for the conduct of international affairs.

The volumes include an introduction by Joensson and Langhorne followed by sixty selections thematically organised across three volumes: Theory of Diplomacy, History of Diplomacy, and Problems and Issues in Contemporary Diplomacy.

The result is an unparalleled resource that combines broad coverage of the subject with both historical depth and contemporary relevance.

Volume 1: introduces and reviews classic and contemporary definitional questions surrounding the study of diplomacy and theories of the origin and functions of diplomacy.

Volume 2: reviews the evolution from 'Old' to 'New' diplomacy through more than three millennia. Contributions span key eras of diplomacy from the earliest diplomatic records through Renaissance Italy to the development of the European state system and the aftermath of war.

Volume 3: focuses on areas of change, continuity and challenge in the current context and practice of diplomacy. Contributions address the contending debates around a perceived decline or crisis of diplomacy on the one hand, and the emergence of new, non-state, actors, modes and means of contemporary diplomacy, on the other.
