Diplomacy has become one of the world's dangerous professions, given the high incidence of attacks upon diplomats abroad and even upon embassies during the past twenty years. Written by an Australian foreign service officer, this work provides a calm, analytic view of the worldwide problem as well as a special section on the Australian experience. Unlike many other writers on terrorism, he eschews alarmist rhetoric and is confident that the norms that have sustained diplomatic practice for centuries can be maintained.
