Item description for Diplomats at War: British and Commonwealth Diplomacy in Wartime (History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence) by Christopher Baxter...
The first half of the twentieth century had a dramatic impact upon the practice of diplomacy and the role of diplomats in wartime. The advent of total war witnessed the rapid expansion of the diplomatic agenda and saw the transformation of overseas policy into wartime policy. Regional and world conflicts would revolutionise the way embassies, legations, high commissions and governorships functioned, posing formidable challenges to the authority of heads of missions whose job it was to manage the bilateral relations for which they were responsible. With contributions from leading scholars on various British and Commonwealth heads of mission, this book provides a fascinating survey of diplomats and their responses to the vicissitudes of war, making an important contribution to twentieth century diplomatic history. Contributors include: Ian Nish, Keith Hamilton, Keith Neilson, T. G. Otte, Greg Kennedy, Carl Bridge, David Lee, Kent Fedorowich, Ashley Jackson and David Lowe.
