Force and Statecraft: Diplomatic Challenges of Our Time

This book is for upper division courses in Diplomatic History, Diplomacy and Statecraft, or history of foreign relations, and has sold extremely well through three editions. For the fourth edition, the original co-authors, Craig and George, were joined by Paul Lauren from the University of Montana. The book is divided into three parts: the first section is a survey of international history and diplomacy; the second part is about specific problems, divided into chapters on the Lessons of History, Negotiation, Deterrence, Coercive Diplomacy and Crisis Management; the third part explores ethics and other restraints on force and statecraft.
