A brilliant, sweeping history of diplomacy that includes personal stories from the noted former Secretary of State, including his stunning reopening of relations with China. The seminal work on foreign policy and the art of diplomacy. Moving from a sweeping overview of history to blow-by-blow accounts of his negotiations with world leaders, Henry Kissinger describes how the art of diplomacy has created the world in which we live, and how America’s approach to foreign affairs has always differed vastly from that of other nations. Brilliant, controversial, and profoundly incisive, Diplomacy stands as the culmination of a lifetime of diplomatic service and scholarship. It is vital reading for anyone concerned with the forces that have shaped our world today and will impact upon it tomorrow.

The New Economic Diplomacy explains how states conduct their external economic relations in the 21st century: how they make decisions domestically; how they negotiate internationally; and how these processes interact. It documents the transformation of economic diplomacy in the 1990s and early 2000s in response to the end of the Cold War, the advance of globalisation and the growing influence of non-state actors like private business and civil society. Fully updated, the second edition reflects the impact of the campaign against terrorism, the war in Iraq and the rise of major developing countries like China and India.Based on the authors' own work in the field of international political economy, it is suitable for students interested in the decision making processes in foreign economic policy including those studying International Relations, Government, Politics and Economics but will also appeal to politicians, bureaucrats, business people, NGO activists, journalists and the informed public.

Claudia Auer entwickelt eine Theorie der Public Diplomacy, die handlungstheoretische Ansätze mit makrosoziologischen Perspektiven zusammenführt. Detailliert analysiert sie einen bislang kaum erforschten Bereich kommunikativen Handelns und zeigt gleichzeitig, dass mit der sozialtheoretischen Grundlegung nicht nur Public Diplomacy, sondern verschiedene Formen strategischer und öffentlicher Kommunikation theoretisch erfasst werden können. Ihre Überlegungen zum Entwurf einer Theorie der PR und des Journalismus lassen erkennen, dass diese auch in solchen Forschungsfeldern zu neuen und weiterführenden Erkenntnissen führen können, die bereits durch Sozialtheorien gut erfasst worden sind.

​ Wissenschaft und Forschung kommt in der staatlichen Außenrepräsentation seit jeher eine bedeutende Rolle zu. Im Kontext aktueller Entwicklungen – Schlagworte sind hier die Globalisierung zentraler gesellschaftlicher Bereiche, aufkommende Probleme wie Terrorismus und Klimawandel sowie schließlich die Entwicklung der sogenannten Wissensgesellschaft – erhalten Wissenschaft und Forschung zunehmend politisches Gewicht. Science Diplomacy wird als wichtiges Instrument im Rahmen internationaler politischer und ökonomischer Zielstellungen gesehen. Birte Fähnrich präsentiert eine grundlegende Bestandsaufnahme des bisher weitgehend unerforschten Phänomens Science Diplomacy mit besonderem Fokus auf Elemente strategischer Kommunikation in der Auswärtigen Wissenschaftspolitik. Als Fallstudie dient die Initiative „Werbung für den Forschungsstandort Deutschland“ des Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung.

Der weltweite Transformationsprozess der vergangenen Jahrzehnte hin zu einer globalen Medien- und Wissensgesellschaft verändert das Machtpotential von Nationalstaaten. Die traditionelle Interessenvertretung mittels diplomatischer Beziehungen wird abgeschwächt. Zusätzliche Wege müssen eingeschlagen werden, um den eigenen Standpunkten im globalen Kontext Aufmerksamkeit und Verständnis zu verschaffen. Die vorliegende Studie beschäftigt sich mit dem in der deutschen Forschung bislang vernachlässigten Konzept von Public Diplomacy und konzentriert sich dabei auf die Rolle des deutschen Auslandsrundfunks - der Deutschen Welle. Anhand einer Dokumentenanalyse und Experteninterviews wird das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen journalistischem Selbstverständnis und politischem Auftrag der Deutschen Welle untersucht. Am Ende der Arbeit steht ein Ergebnis, welches die Positionen beider Seiten und ihr Verhältnis zueinander darstellt.

"It's the economy, stupid!" - das war der innenpolitische Slogan, mit dem Bill Clinton 1992 die Wähler für sich gewinnen konnte. Auch in der Außenpolitik erhob der neue Präsident den Anspruch, das Verhältnis zwischen sicherheits- und wirtschaftpolitischen Prioritäten neu zu ordnen. Ökonomische Ziele sollten von nun an den Kern des außenpolitischen Interessenkalküls der USA bilden. "Economic Diplomacy" wurde zum Leitbild einer neuen Außenpolitik erhoben, nationale Sicherheit als ökonomische Sicherheit neu definiert. Das Buch untersucht, ob hinter dem Label "Economic Diplomacy" tatsächlich ein solch fundamentaler Wandel der amerikanischen Außenpolitik steht. Drei Fragen stehen im Mittelpunkt: Welches waren die Grundzüge der außenpolitischen Agenda Clintons? Was waren die Ideen und Wahrnehmungsmuster hinter dem Konzept der "Economic Diplomacy"? Inwieweit konnte Clinton seine Vorstellungen im außenpolitischen Entscheidungsprozeß und in der operativen Außenpolitik in die Praxis umsetzen?

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.

The authors in Cyber-Diplomacy look at the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) as a case study of a foreign ministry that has had to make considerable adjustments in recent years - in the management of its CIT infrastructure; in the impact of communications and information technologies on its diplomatic culture, and in the use of communications technology to promote its public diplomacy. Mass communications and advances in communications technology pose fundamental challenges to the traditional conduct of diplomacy by reducing hierarchy, promoting transparency, crowding out secrecy, mobilizing global social movements, and increasing the importance of public diplomacy in international relations. But the primary source of change, the force that acts as a common denominator and accelerates other changes, is communications and information technology (CIT). Where nations were once connected through foreign ministries and traders, they are now linked to millions of individuals by fibre optics, satellite, wireless, and cable in a complex network without central control. These trends have resulted in considerable speculation about the future of diplomacy. Contributors include Andrew F. Cooper (University of Waterloo), Ronald J. Deibert (University of Toronto), Eytan Gilboa (Holon Institute of Technology and Bar-Ilan University, Israel), Steven Livingston (George Washington University), Evan H. Potter (Universty of Ottawa), Gordon Smith (University of Victoria), Peter J.
