Independent Diplomat: Dispatches from an Unaccountable Elite (Crises in World Politics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For more than 15 years, Ross was a British diplomat on the frontlines of numerous international crises, including the war in Afghanistan. Here he provides a compelling account of what's wrong with contemporary diplomacy and offers a bold new vision of how it might be put right.

Book News Annotation:

Through mainly personal anecdotes from his fifteen years as a British diplomat (which ended in resignation), Ross argues that the status quo in diplomacy is not democratic, but a conceit that only an accepted elite understand and may therefore influence international affairs. The author's tales shed light into the dealings of the EU, the UN, and other diplomacy bodies over issues including Kosovo and the first and second wars in Iraq. He runs a diplomacy firm for poor and underrepresented governments and groups. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
