In a world in which the need for effective diplomacy is more urgent than ever, this brilliant examination of the intellectual origins of western diplomacy deploys the work of key thinkers such as Foucault, Hegel, Nietzche and Marx to show how the origins and transformations of diplomacy are related to conditions of alienation, and attempts to mediate through law, thought and communications. James Der Derian presents a highly sophisticated intellectual argument which will attract a great deal of attention in academic fields on both sides of the Atlantic.
