"The Diplomatic Presidency examines how modern US presidents-through correspondence, telephone calls, and face-to-face meetings-increasingly interacted with other world leaders. Historians and political scientists have overlooked the central role that leader-to-leader diplomacy came to play in the conduct of US foreign affairs and what it meant for presidential leadership at home and abroad. To address this oversight, the study spans the history of the presidency from Franklin Roosevelt to Bill Clinton. FDR's presidency established the pattern for future presidents by greatly expanding the scope and magnitude of presidential personal diplomacy. Whereas previous scholarship has tended to focus on the personalities or preferences of individual presidents, Tizoc Chavez argues that post-WWII presidents acted quite similarly in their use of personal diplomacy and did so for similar reasons. He reframes the historiographical conversation by shifting from a narrow focus on presidential uniqueness to a wider lens that recognizes similarities and connections across the presidency, which explains how an unwritten law barring the use of personal diplomacy transformed into an expectation of its use. Chavez identifies four major factors in this rise of personal diplomacy: a changing international environment, developments internal to the presidency, the desire of foreign leaders to interact directly with the US president, and domestic political incentives. The result has been that what was once effectively prohibited has become normal and expected"--

"The drawing power of Air Force One is immense. There are political ramifications, positive and negative, at the tactical and strategic levels of Diplomacy when Air Force One lands for an official visit of the President of the United States to a single nation or on a multi-nation trip. More importantly, the most mobile symbol of the United States, the only one that can carry the American Ideal across the country or around the world, is Air Force One. This report highlights the history of presidential travel aboard the many aircraft called Air Force One. It provides insights into how the Presidents of the United States, from John Kennedy to George W. Bush, have felt about this aircraft from a personal perspective. It also illustrates how Air Force One has been used as a tool of public diplomacy. Specific examples are sited that demonstrate how Air Force One has been used as a powerful legislative tool, a show of symbolism and prestige, a show of force, and a show of national strength and will. An Air Force One presidential pilot perspective has also been provided that gives a unique perspective into how Air Force One is used by the White House to deliver a political message and at what level presidential pilots become involved in the use of Air Force One as a tool of diplomacy. In addition to the presidential pilot perspective, a Department of State (DoS) perspective is also included, highlighting the cultural and diplomatic effects the DoS can have, negatively or positively, on the visit of Air Force One and the President to a country. Finally, a country perspective from Air Force One's first trip to the Republic of Georgia is included for analysis. The findings of the president's trip to the Republic of Georgia highlight the problems faced at the tactical and strategic levels of diplomacy and conclusions are drawn that Military, DoS, Secret Service, and Public Affairs Officers can apply in the event Air Force One and the president visit their Embassy locations overseas."--Abstract.

The memoirs of senior UK diplomat Sir Peter Westmacott, former ambassador in Turkey, France and the United States during Barack Obama's presidency. Urbane, globe-trotting mandarins; polished hosts of ambassadorial gatherings attended by the well-groomed ranks of the international great and good: such is the well-worn image of the career diplomat. But beyond the canapés of familiar caricature, what does a professional diplomat actually do? What are the activities that fill the working day of Her Majesty's Ambassadors around the world? Can they exert a real influence on the course of negotiations between presidents and prime ministers and thereby bring about real and beneficial change in relationships between nation-states? Peter Westmacott's forty-year career in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office straddled the last decade of the Cold War and the age of globalization, included spells in pre-revolutionary Iran and the European Commission in Brussels, and culminated in prestigious ambassadorial postings in Ankara, Paris and Washington in the post-9/11 era. As well as offering an engaging account of life in the upper echelons of the diplomatic and political worlds, and often revealing portraits of global leaders such as Tony Blair, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Barack Obama and his then vice-president Joe Biden, They Call It Diplomacy mounts a vigorous defence of the continuing relevance of the diplomat in an age of instant communication, social media and special envoys; and details what its author sees as some of the successes of recent British diplomacy. A committed Internationalist, Westmacott offers trenchantly Europhile views on the Brexit referendum and its aftermath, and voices his concerns about Britain's ability to continue to bring its influence to bear on the wider world now that it has left the European Union. REVIEWS: 'A highly readable account of a glittering diplomatic career, They Call it Diplomacy combines deep insights into the critical foreign policy challenges of the last forty years while also offering valuable lessons for Britain's future international role' TONY BLAIR 'Post-Brexit Britain is once again in search of its place in the world. Peter Westmacott's engaging memoir, drawing on a Foreign Office career that included the top job in Washington, provides a must-read guide to the crucial role for diplomacy in restoring British influence' PHILIP STEPHENS, Chief Political Commentator, Financial Times 'Peter Westmacott was one of the most brilliant and consequential diplomats of his generation, rising to the apex of his service. Anyone interested in understanding how international relations work at the highest level should read They Call it Diplomacy' ANDREW ROBERTS, author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny

This book will illustrate that despite the variations of nuclear tensions during the Cold War period—from nuclear inception, to mass proliferation, to arms control treaties and détente, through to an intensification and “reasonable” conclusion (the INF Treaty and START being case points)—the “lessons” over the last decade are quickly being unlearned. Given debates surrounding the emerging “new Cold War,” the deterioration of relations between Russia and the United States, and the concurrent challenges being made by key nuclear states in obfuscating arms control mechanisms, this book attempts to provide a much needed revisit into US presidential foreign policy during the Cold War. Across nine chapters, the monograph traces the United States’ nuclear diplomacy and Presidential strategic thought, transitioning across the early period of Cold War arms racing through to the era’s defining conclusion. It will reveal that notwithstanding the heightened periods when great power conflict seemed imminent, arms control fora and seminal agreements were able to be devised, implemented, and provided a needed base in bringing down the specter of a cataclysmic nuclear war, as well as improving bilateral relations. This volume will be of great interest to scholars and students of American foreign policy, diplomatic history, security studies and international relations.
