History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence, 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.

History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence is a peer-reviewed book series which seeks to publish high-quality, pioneering works in the history of international relations, broadly conceived. In addition to disseminating original research in traditional areas addressed by this field, including diplomacy, national security, economic conflict, and the role of individuals, this series also embraces the ongoing expansion of the study of international relations into such areas as culture, race, gender, sexuality, and the environment. Its books will encompass as well the often-overlooked role of intelligence and intelligence agencies in shaping foreign relations.


History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence actively intends to further engagement between the scholarly community and the policy-making one, by demonstrating the continued importance of past patterns, practices, and policies for today’s pressing debates.


History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence includes the subseries New Directions in Diplomatic History.
Both series have independent editorial teams that work closely together.

Authors/Editors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/ or full manuscripts to the series editor or to the publisher Hendrik van Leusen.
