Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product description


He writes well and his tone is engagingly sardonic...an admirable diplomatic primer. (Piers Brendon SUNDAY TIMES)

This enjoyable book, by Briatin's former ambassador to Washington, consists of nine finely drawn studies of key diplomatic moments in British history. (OBSERVER)

The former British ambassador to the US weaves an interesting tale of power, deception, betrayal, espionage, intrigue and cunning...a must-read book for any astute observer of modern diplomacy. (CATHOLIC HERALD)

Book Description

A highly informed insider's account of some of the 'honest men' as they sought, by fair means or foul, to get Britain its way in the world.
