Living Diplomacy promises to take a fresh look at the actual practice of diplomacy, setting diplomacy in its contemporary context and analyzing the major factors that have changed the nature of the intelligent conduct of diplomacy. Unlike other books on the market which are written by academics, Living Diplomacy is written from the vantage point of someone who not only knows and teaches about the scholarly underpinnings of diplomacy, but who has lived that experience himself. Ambassador Hare provides a thorough, critical survey of how diplomacy has evolved, the way its institutions have been created, and, crucially, new challenges to its operations. It examines not just the fundamentals -- state to state relations, negotiation, and key diplomatic institutions -- but also considers the role of non-state actors, the impact of modern communications technologies, the effect of transnational issues, and globalized international business practices. Bringing diplomacy to life for students, every chapter of the book is full of many real world examples from contemporary diplomacy, including events from the author's own experience. Chapters also feature extended case studies, covering topics like diplomatic immunity and privileges, the achievements and failures of institutions like the UN, successes and failures in diplomatic negotiations, the effectiveness of international law and its impact on diplomacy, and more.
