Essays on Diplomatic History and International Relations

During a career that spanned sixty years, Gordon A. Craig (1913–2005) was one of America’s leading authorities on diplomatic history and international relations. This volume of previously uncollected essays (with one essay published here for the first time) includes several surveys, from different perspectives, of the field of diplomatic history; comparative studies of American and European conceptions of foreign policy and the balance of power; and essays on the theory and practice of diplomacy, focusing especially on the turbulent twentieth century.

About the Authors

Gordon A. Craig was for more than half a century one of America's foremost historians of Germany and Europe. He was the J.E. Wallace Sterling Professor in the Humanities at Stanford University and (in 1982) the president of the American Historical Association. He was a member of the German Federal Republic's Orden Pour le Merite fur Wissen schaften und Kunste, and (in 1999) winner of the first Benjamin Franklin--Wilhelm von Humboldt Prize of the German-American Academic Council.
