meaning of "community" in the modern world has been redefined by the advances
of technology, the globalization of the economy, and the international
response to environmental and humanitarian needs. In this context, a new
approach to diplomacy as a guiding force is essential.
Diplomacy explores the creative and uniting force of diplomacy in
all types of relationships. This book is a blend of political theory,
psychology, idealism, and common sense. It reveals how diplomacy can replace
ideology, partisan politics, and nationalism as the political framework
in a world which maintains diversity while working for a common purpose.
emphasis in World Diplomacy is that the choices made by individuals
and governments in the next few years will decide how humanity will be
able to live on this planet beyond the twentieth century. It presents
alternative ideas and approaches upon which to make those choices. This
book presents a hopeful and pro-active approach to international relations
based on improving the quality of life for future generations.
