Satow's Diplomatic Practice is a classic work, first published 90 years ago and revised four times since. This is the first revised edition for thirty years, during which time the world and diplomacy have changed almost beyond recognition. The new edition provides an enlarged and updated section on the history of diplomacy and revises comprehensively the practice of diplomacy and the corpus of diplomatic and international law since the end of the Cold War. It traces the substantial expansion in numbers both of sovereign states and international and regional organisations and features detailed chapters on diplomatic privileges and immunities, diplomatic missions and consular matters. It also examines new forms of diplomacy from the work of NGOs to the use of secret envoys and commercial security firms, and the book highlights the impact of international terrorism on the life and work of a diplomat. Satow is an indispensable guide for anyone working in or studying the field of diplomacy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Having clarity over the rules of the game, developing experience in seperating duty from stupidity, finding the right words when the sword might be the alternative, are all part of the practise of diplomacy at its finest. this book is a treasure for illustrating what that is. Jeremy Greenstock, Times Literary Supplement {Main} Despite being a collective work, it retains the coherence required of a trusted manual. It remains a beacon of orientation; a reliable guide to, and authoritative commentary on, the world of diplomacy. And lastly, changes in style and exposition notwithstanding. it remains well-written[.] Christian J Tams, University of Glasgow, The Edinburgh Law Review vol 15 The only book that explains both what diplomacy is and how it is organised across the world, with the UK at the centre...an extremely interesting account of how diplomacy works and what its machinery does...and absolutely up to date. Jeremy Greenstock, fivebooks.com This classic guide to diplomacy has been stylishly updated and remains a masterly description of the way in which foreign policy should be conducted. It covers comprehensively the diplomatic challenges of a new century in the sort of prose that we must all hope will continue to be an attribute of the best Foreign Office officials. It is in all our interests that the exigencies of public spending control do not constrain the ability of diplomats in Britain and abroad to practise the arts so well surveyed here. Chris Patten, Chancellor, University of Oxford; Former British Governor of Hong Kong Satow's Diplomatic Practice has been the diplomat's bible for nearly a century and the publication of the first new edition for thirty years will receive a much deserved welcome. This new edition of Satow is a treasure trove of information, all of it presented in a wonderfully readable form. It will be indispensable for all practitioners of diplomacy. Judge Sir Christopher Greenwood Having clarity over the rules of the game, developing experience in separating duty from stupidity, finding the right words when the sword might be the alternative, are all part of the practice of diplomacy at its finest. This book is a treasure for illustrating what that is. Jeremy Greenstock, The Times Literary Supplement ...the only book that explains what diplomacy is and how it is organised across the world, with the UK at its centre...an extremely interesting account of how diplomacy works and what its machinery does Jeremy Greenstock, Diplomat, interviewed by Sophie Roell for fivebooks.com [T]his erudite and authoritative work...is a much needed reminder that the diplomat's pen is still the only alternative to the sword, and for that alone it is to be welcomed. T.G. Otte is Senior Lecturer in Diplomatic History at the University of East Anglia. H-Diplo Review Essay This latest edition is an excellent volume and should probably be within easy reach of diplomats and diplomatic historians alike...an essential reference work. As the most notable publication of its type on diplomatic practice, it is to be hoped future editions of Satow are forthcoming as the world of diplomacy clearly never stands stil. Anthony Smith
