New Directions in Diplomatic History, 4 (History of International Relations Library, 28)Drawing on a wealth of archival and other material, the essays in this volume explore some of the central aspects of the evolution of modern diplomatic practice from the problems of late-nineteenth-century Great Power relations to emerging forms of twenty-first century diplomatic practice. This collection is also meant to honour the contribution made by Keith Hamilton to diplomatic history and diplomatic studies. In his own academic writings and behind the scenes, in the Historical Branch of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and as an editor of the official series Documents on British Policy Overseas, he has made an inestimable contribution to the development of diplomatic history and diplomatic studies in the United Kingdom and beyond.Table of ContentsT.G.
