Review quote

"These handsome volumes...represent a remarkable accomplishment....This 4 volume set will be immensely useful to anyone interested in this vast subject--from beginning students looking for accessible overviews and bibliographies to scholars wishing to check facts that are out of mind (but no longer, happily, out of reach). The editorial team responsible for these volumes--which every library should have, and every scholar and policymaker will want--has superbly executed a herculean task.."--Foreign Affairs"A treasure-trove of excellent scholarship from well-known historians, political scientists, and assorted academicians affiliated with the study of diplomacy....It is unmatched in its treatment of this dynamic and fast-changing field....An indispensable resource...for larger libraries, it readily supplements existing works, and for smaller ones it provides all the coverage necessary for most users."--Library Journal"A masterful achievement that belongs in every library in the US."--Choiceshow more
