Diplomacy and Foreign Policy
The Prince (Penguin Classics)
"The classic practical manual for mediaeval rulers (and would-be rulers) on obtaining and retaining power. Didn't get him a job though..."
The Future of Freedom: Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad
"well-written book distinguishes between liberalism and democracy, emphasising importance of the institutions of the former to the effective development of the latter"
Wars, Guns and Votes: Democracy in Dangerous Places
"original empiricism on the relation between peace and democracy, especially in Africa; how elections are not always the solution: surprising conclusions"
The Ambassador: Inside the Life of a Working Diplomat
"quite good close-up review of a Swedish Ambassador in Washington's daily working life"
Satow's Diplomatic Practice
"1st new edition in 30 yrs of standard UK text on diplomatic practice, originally from 1917. Heavily updated and expanded, esp. sections on multilaterals, EU etc, to over 700pp. A snip at 100 squid ;-)"
Force and Statecraft: Diplomatic Challenges of Our Time
"dense, a bit repetitive but nonetheless useful on the need for international legal order, its history and rationale. Good references."
The Geopolitics of Emotion: How Cultures of Fear, Humiliation and Hope are Reshaping the World
"original, topical, journalistic study of how "irrationality" has entered international discourse and the need to take its influence into account"
On Justice, Power and Human Nature: Selections from 'The History of the Peloponnesian War': Essence of Thucydides' "History of the Peloponnesian ... "History of the Peloponnesian War"
"accessible short extracts from the very roots of history, classical thoughts and debate on conflict and interstate relations"
The 21st Century Ambassador: Plenipotentiary to Chief Executive
"The most practical advice I have yet seen on an Ambassador's role, particularly the change in his/her main role from negotiator to manager. Available in paperback from the Diplo Foundation in Malta."
Thinking in Time: The Uses of History for Decision Makers
"tries to prise lessons from history to help the process of decision-making, sometimes a little tortuously. Interesting examples and counter-examples"
European Union Foreign Policy in a Changing World
"good overview of a complex subject, but may need updating post-Lisbon"
Contemporary Conflict Resolution 2nd edition: The Prevention, Management and Transformation of Deadly Conflicts
"classic, complete conflict resolution textbook, traces the development of conflict management thought through to modern peace-building"
Europe as Empire The Nature of the Enlarged European Union (Paperback)

"valuable critique of diplomatic methods and structures in a changing world"
The Breaking of Nations: Order and Chaos in the Twenty-first Century

The Return of History and the End of Dreams
"realpolitik critique of the visions of a new world order"

"tatty cover and title conceals interesting observations of government-media relations from trips with UK foreign ministers"
Diplomacy and the Study of International Relations (Histories of the Nations)
"Neglected 1919 overview, buy from Cornell Uni printed from microfiche. Good quotes & snippets from many authorities, eg Abbé Saint-Pierre forecasting EU decision-making rules 300 years ago, & more."
