The ambassador is a symbol of the foreign state and personifies international relations. He is also the object of frequent misreading of utility. This volume argues that the role of the ambassador in contemporary international relations has been redefined. It also looks at what has happened to the traditional roles the ambassador had to fulfil.



The preface looks at the way Indian envoys have served their country, and the evolution in their performance. Literally sprinkled with anecdotes from diplomatic lore, this engaging and incisive study will be of immense interest to political scientists, scholars of international relations and foreign policy, students of diplomacy, professional diplomats, journalists and the informed lay reader.
