History of International Relations, Diplomacy and Intelligence, 3 (History of International Relations Library, 3) The first half of the twentieth century had a dramatic impact upon the practice of diplomacy and the role of diplomats in wartime. The advent of total war witnessed the rapid expansion of the diplomatic agenda and saw the transformation of overseas policy into wartime policy. Regional and world conflicts would revolutionise the way embassies, legations, high commissions and governorships functioned, posing formidable challenges to the authority of heads of missions whose job it was to manage the bilateral relations for which they were responsible. With contributions from leading scholars on various British and Commonwealth heads of mission, this book provides a fascinating survey of diplomats and their responses to the vicissitudes of war, making an important contribution to twentieth century diplomatic history. "The book is a splendid analysis of how British and Commonwealth diplomats adjusted to the transformation of their duties in wartime. Moreover, it offers intriguing insights into the diminishing status of Britain as a world power in the first half of the 20th Century".
