This entry will however be mercifully short. Most reviews of this book are bad. The complaint charges mainly that the book is dull and its exposition makes points that are obvious. I think this criticism is half right and half wrong.
The book is dull, but partly by design.

Diplomacy : theory and practice / G.R. Berridge – Details – Trove
The real counter charge against Berridge is that his analysis isn’t full; that he his design is too rigid; that he is guilty of major omissions; or that he has missed other subtleties or quirks of diplomacy. Whether these charges are right, or not, ciplomacy in part exonerate him from the claim of being dull, or obvious, since an inquiry of this sort is itself neither.
Berrudge should be said that he helpfully dpilomacy examples to each portion of his discussion. I credit him for it, but it would have been inappropriate had he not. I would go one step farther however and say that his examples begin to get repetitive since he borrows from the same set of events again and again.
And that they lack charm of a good story, which, if had orchestrated it better, could have berrixge affected with a sort of gnomic quality–not dissimilar to that like which appears in Machiavelli, Montaigne, Plutarch, and other great historians recounting anecdotes of old.

As it’s already in reference st I bought the new edition of this textbook which isn’t on goodreads published in for my course and degreeand I don’t regret it at all. As it’s already in reference style, it also makes it much easier to add to your reference list. It’s written in a simple, easy way making it very clear and understandable. This means anyone can read it, even with little to no knowledge prior about the subject matter, and still be provided with very useful information.
It’s a great overview of everything in the field. This is a really useful read so I recommend this textbook to anyone studying politics, diplomacy, international relations or even to whomever is interested in diplomacy in general and how things actually work in that realm of politics.
