Nations, even the most powerful, cannot cope by themselves with many of the problems confronting them. Collective efforts are needed, and diplomacy is a key element in this process. This text examines how diplomacy serves global governance, how the diverse international actors use it, and what it accomplishes. The focus is on diplomatic practice, looking at the diverse methods used by the international actors involved and how they contribute to its effectiveness. The first section examines how various levels of international actors practice diplomacy. Nation states are still key actors and they use many methods in embassies, international conferences, international organizations, summit meetings, and more. International organizations are both a forum for multilateral diplomacy and a major set of international actors still growing in significance for global governance diplomacy. In addition, a multiplicity of regional or limited membership institutions play a role in global governance. At the transnational level, there is the increasing role of civil society institutions and nongovernmental organizations in international affairs. This is where a new kind of international actors is found, unevenly contributing to global governance diplomacy beyond the control of public authorities. The second section explores the functional level, looking at how diplomacy operates in five areas of global governance: peace and security, economic governance, social issues, human rights, and environmental protection. Each of these presents different challenges for global governance diplomacy and requires the development of different diplomatic strategies and new techniques. Some of the issues are more amenable to global governance while others, such as the eradication of global poverty remain fairly intractable. The text extends beyond the usual description of diplomatic apparatus and dynamics to explore "diplomacy at work" in specific, current policy areas that are very relevant to the present debates in international politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Global Governance Diplomacy is an outstanding and highly successful effort to tie the myriad strands of contemporary diplomacy and governance together. It is extremely well-written, and gives many practical examples of the interconnectedness of world issues, It will introduce students and practitioners both effectively to the traditional bases of current problems as well as the ways world thinkers and leaders are trying to cope with exploding nontraditional global situations. -- John D. Stempel, senior professor emeritus at and former director of International Relations U.K. Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce, University of Kentucky
No one has a better mastery of the field of diplomacy than Jean-Robert Leguey-Feilleux. His command of the basic facts of international diplomacy is comprehensive both in his grasp of the contemporary complexity of this field, and of its historical background. Here he sets forth the complex and interlocking networks of international diplomacy and will have applications both in the academic community and for orientation sessions for government bureaucrats and military officers. -- Timothy J. Lomperis, Saint Louis University, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Department of Political Science, Saint Louis University
