Never has diplomacy been more necessary than today, as this fine book demonstrates so eloquently.

An excellent book. Obviously an historic and thoughtful piece of work.

Lord Howe of Aberavon

 

“Is Diplomacy Dead? is moving and most interesting.

Matthew Parris

 

As I expected, it is lively and entertaining.

Lord Hurd of Westwell

 

Greatly enjoyed reading it…The depatches read really well.

Lord Hannay of Chiswick

 

Much enjoyed reading it. I went straight to Chapter 8 – the reports say as much about the reporting officers as they do about the author.

Lord Wilson of Dinton

 

A most interesting and significant book.

Sir Leslie Fielding’s latest book is for both modern diplomatic historians and the informed general public.

 

The central part focuses on four major international issues of the 1960s-1980s – the Cambodian tragedy, the French ‘veto’, the challenge of Japan and the freeing up of world trade. The author reveals state confidences and explains the traditional techniques of diplomatic reporting – and how diplomats were monitored.

 

But times have changed. Things have moved on. On both sides of the Atlantic, in this century, professional diplomacy has taken some knocks. Probably what was (in Britain’s case) the best Diplomatic Service in the world found itself overstretched, under-resourced, side-lined and uncertain. So the author puts the rhetorical question: “Is Diplomacy Dead?”

 

The answer is “No”. It is far too soon to start preparing the coffin for British diplomacy. The Diplomatic Service under the Coalition and William Hague is once more able to fulfill its potential – ever more essential, as power centres shift, sectarian conflicts become more acute, and difficulties lie ahead over energy and water shortages and the effects of climate change.
