Like making war, diplomacy has been around a very long time, at least since the Bronze Age.

It was primitive by today's standards, there were few rules, but it was a recognizable form of diplomacy.

Since then, diplomacy has evolved greatly, coming to mean different things, to different persons, at different times, ranging from the elegant to the inelegant.

Whatever one's definition, few could doubt that the course and consequences of the major events of moderninternational diplomacy have shaped and changed the global world in which we live.

Joseph M. Siracusa introduces the subject of diplomacy from a historical perspective, providing examples from significant historical phases and episodes to illustrate the art of diplomacy in action. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area.
