Opis: David Bruce and Diplomatic Practice - John Young

David Bruce (1898-1977) was a prominent American diplomat, who served in France, Germany, and the UK. His work is examined here to provide an in-depth look at the practice of diplomacy and the role of the ambassador as diplomatic actor. This thorough survey aims to investigate the relevance of the resident embassy to modern diplomacy. To do so, it focuses on the ambassador's daily work as a diplomat, looking at his role in promoting friendly relations, his political reporting, policy advising, as well as the role of his staff and his relations with others in the Foreign Service. It also addresses major issues such as the debate over the 'death of the embassy,' showing that ambassadors remain vital actors in the relations between major powers. The work integrates theoretical material on diplomatic practice and the case study of a highly regarded diplomat. This unique, readable study will appeal to students in diplomacy, international relations, American politics, as well as to trainee and junior diplomats. This is an example of one of the best kinds of historical writing: an exhaustively researched and crisply written case study designed to examine general propositions, here those concerning chiefly the role of the embassy in modern diplomacy. In the process, Professor Young has not only scotched many myths but also produced a genuinely interesting book on Anglo-American relations, itself quite an achievement. I found it compulsive reading. G. R. Berridge, Emeritus Professor of International Politics, University of Leicester, UK and Senior Fellow, DiploFoundation John Young's David Bruce and Diplomatic Practice provides a rare glimpse into the workings of one of the most important and influential American embassies in Western Europe during the height of the Cold War. Bruce was one of the most experienced and respected American diplomats of the postwar era, and his long tenure in London affords Young the opportunity to go beyond the headline issues of the day to examine the routines, practices, and personalities which shaped the 'special relationship' during the tumultuous 1960s. This is a truly unique study of modern diplomacy and a very significant contribution to our understanding of international relations in the 20th century. Thomas Alan Schwartz, Professor of History, Vanderbilt University, USA Young's fascinating study of the tenure of David Bruce as U.S. Ambassador in London sheds new light on the changing role of ambassadors and on diplomatic relations between Britain and the United States during a crucial decade of transition. Drawing on a wide range of sources including Bruce's own diary, Young paints a picture of the life of an ambassador which is vivid, engaging, illuminating and informative. All scholars of contemporary diplomatic practice, international history and British and American foreign policy will profit from reading this valuable work. Nigel Ashton, Head of the Department of International History, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK A fascinating account of the London tenure of US ambassador David Bruce, one of the leading diplomats of the 20th century. John Young writes with verve, precision, and profound insight into the workings of modern diplomacy. A book that helps us understand why diplomacy is important and why some diplomats are far more successful than others. OA Westad, author of Restless Empire: China and the World since 1750 Focusing on the daily business of the American Embassy in London and the work and life of Ambassador David Bruce, John Young has painted a subtle yet vivid and complex picture of Anglo-American relations during the 1960s, revealing the depth and difficulties of relations between the two countries. Michael Kandiah, Institute of Contemporary British History, King's College London, UK John Young's excellent new book brings a fresh perspective to the Anglo-American relationship. It skilfully charts the work of David Bruce as the United States Ambassador to Britain; and it explores the multifarious operations of the American Embassy in London that he presided over in the 1960s. It captures the wide range of activities expected of a modern head of mission and provides insights into the contribution of America's most distinguished postwar ambassador. This study offers a compelling analysis of David Bruce's key role in facilitating effective Anglo-American relations in a time of difficult changes in Britain's place in the world. Michael F. Hopkins, Department of History, University of Liverpool, UK David Bruce, millionaire diplomat, was a towering figure in twentieth-century US foreign relations. He was also Ambassador to London during the Sixties, one of the most dramatic and significant periods in the history of the United States, the United Kingdom, and the special relationship. In this excellent, innovative and fascinating book, John Young explains how a seasoned ambassador ran every aspect of his Embassy and how diplomacy actually worked.
