There are some minor differences between this edition and the previous one (in which I have read both). Both are useful and complete each other. My biggest concern, however, is that sometimes the terms used in this book are rather difficult to understand for complete beginners or novice that have no previous backgrounds whatsoever regarding diplomacy. There are lacks of explicit definitions of the terms which demand readers to intensively read sentence by sentence to completely understand the concepts used.
This book provides some interesting examples in cases of diplomacy. Among the most interesting is clearly Reagan-Thatcher's 'telephone diplomacy,' which should be a very good story to make the point clear regarding the importance of the concepts.
To conclude, this is a very good introductory book. For readers that have no background whatsoever of diplomacy, you may want to read more intensively to understand the concepts, yet this book will surely provide you with great insights of diplomacy in our modern world.
