The Palgrave Macmillan Dictionary of Diplomacy

Date: 2018
Indispensable for students of diplomacy and junior members of diplomatic services, this dictionary not only covers diplomacy’s jargon but also includes entries on legal terms, political events, international organizations, e-Diplomacy, and major figures who have occupied the diplomatic scene or have written about it over the last half millennium. Like all professions, diplomacy has spawned its own specialized terminology and it is this lexicon which provides the thematic spine of this dictionary. The Palgrave Macmillan Dictionary of Diplomacy also includes entries on legal terms and major figures who have occupied the diplomatic scene or have written influentially about it over the last half millennium, as well as some on international organizations of special significance. This third edition has been updated with new entries, for example on e-diplomacy, Ottawa process, R2P, stovepiping, and transformational diplomacy. The result is an even tighter focus on the language of diplomacy, while making coverage of it even more comprehensive than before. Students of international politics and related subjects as well as junior members of diplomatic services can turn to this book for assistance in understanding the technicalities of diplomatic and associated language.
