Franklin Roosevelt's foreign policy and the Welles mission by J. Simon Rofe( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work presents an analysis of the mission undertaken by Under Secretary of State Sumner Welles to Europe on behalf of President Roosevelt in February-March 1940. Roosevelt himself reckoned the mission had only "one chance in a thousand" of succeeding in influencing the course of the war in Europe, and yet he pressed ahead. Explaining the motivations and objectives of the President, J. Simon Rofe utilizes the Welles mission to further illuminate our understanding of Rooseveltian foreign policy making."--Jacket
The Embassy in Grosvenor Square : American ambassadors to the United Kingdom, 1938-2008 by Alison Holmes( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leading scholars explore the role played by the American Embassy in London and the US Ambassador to the Court of St James's, not only in bilateral UK-US relations, but also in wider international issues over the years the Embassy has been in Grosvenor Square. This volume covers the period from 1938 to 2008, effectively the lifespan of what has often been termed 'the special relationship', from its birth in the Second World War, through the challenges of the Cold War to the present day. Debates about the 'specialness' of the relationship in the post-war context are key, as are discussions about the impact of the development and demise of the 'Cold War', the ongoing impact of European integration, the influence of nuclear weapons and NATO, and wider economic, cultural, demographic and environmental forces that have shaped the transatlantic relationship to arguably form the basis of a new model of 'transatlantic diplomacy'
International history and international relations by Andrew J Williams( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This innovative new textbook seeks to provide undergraduate students of international relations with valuable and relevant historical context, bridging the gap and offering a genuinely interdisciplinary approach. Each chapter integrates both historical analysis and literature and applies this to an international relations context in an accessible fashion, allowing students to understand the historical context in which these core issues have developed. The book is organised thematically around the key issues in international relations such as war, peace, sovereignty, diplomacy, identity, political violence, empire and international organisations. Each chapter provides an overview of the main historical context, theories and literature in each area and applies this to the study of international relations. Providing a fresh approach, this work will be essential reading for all students of international relations and international relations theory
Diplomats at war : the American experience( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The November 2010 publication of over 250,000 classified U.S. diplomatic cables by the Wikileaks organisation put the spotlight of the world's attention on American diplomats. Beyond various sensationalist headlines, perhaps the most remarkable insight these releases provide is the tale of diligent, thoughtful and professional diplomats from the United States and other nations conducting the bidding of their governments; diplomacy, often in times of acute crisis brought on by war. The forebears of those currently assigned to Kabul and Baghdad, and London and Beijing, have an equally compelling tale to tell. In 'Diplomatic Investigations' (1966) British historian Herbert Butterfield sagely remarked that "Diplomacy may include anything short of actual war, therefore, and sometimes the kindest thing that one can say of it is that it is better than having the guns actually firing." 0Also part of series: History of International Relations Library; 36
Global diplomacy : theories, types, and models by Alison Holmes( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comprehensive textbook addressing the development and issues of diplomacy, Global Diplomacy explores the theory and practice of diplomacy in the era of globalization and the networked world we live in today. In developing their argument that the existence of diplomacy is not dependent on the existence of modern states, Holmes and Rofe place diplomacy in the context of history and international relations theory, incorporate the voices of prominent scholars to explain the types of diplomacy--political, cultural, economic, and military--and discuss two current models of diplomacy, Transatlantic and European, as well as propose a third that accounts for the changing nature of the state and the growing power of other actors on the international stage. With its three-part framework and new institutional model, Global Diplomacy gives students of international relations more tools with which to address the global challenges we face today"--
