Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8 Except for career guide books, little else is available on the subject of diplomacy. Yet the coverage in most encyclopedias is preferable to this book, which is awkwardly written, condescending, and inaccurate at times due to oversimplification and broad generalizations. The book discusses what diplomacy is and how it works, its history, notable diplomats, and career opportunities. The organization is often marred by digressions, such as a brief and rather pointless biography of ``career diplomat'' George Kennan, which interrupts the explanation of ways to become a diplomat. Sweeping statements are presented as fact, such as the opening statement that ``Everyone who travels to a foreign country. . .is a kind of diplomat.'' ``A Gallery of Diplomats'' profiles, in a single paragraph each, 19 diplomats from the 18th Century to today; the information is so cursory as to be meaningless. This section is placed between the glossary and the index, which decreases the accessibility of the glossary. David Gale, ``School Library Journal''
