9780008127565: Naked Diplomacy: Power and Statecraft in the Digital Age

Who will be in power in the 21st century? Governments? Big business? Internet titans? And how do we influence the future?

In the next 100 years, the world will need to deal with the same amount of social development witnessed in the last 43 centuries – from the rebirth of the city state, the battle for new energy, and disappearing borders, to the desire of the world’s people to move to developed nations.

Tom Fletcher, a former British ambassador – and the youngest appointed for 200 years – explores the core principles of a progressive 21st century foreign policy: how to balance interventionism and national interest, use global governance to achieve national objectives and set out an agenda for representative international systems. Alongside wisdom from history’s most influential global leaders and diplomats – Talleyrand, Kissinger, Mandela and the Kennedys included – he analyses the rise of smart power, soft power and the new interventionism. Offering real-world examples of how diplomacy continues to have a significant impact on people’s lives, and why it will continue to do so, Fletcher asks leaders: Who do you represent? And how can you do it better? ‘Naked Diplomacy’ provides the answers for our digital age.

Review:

‘A riveting personal insight into the reality of international relations’
Charlie Burton, GQ

‘Articulate, intelligent and immensely readable ... Fletcher is an irrepressible optimist and his enthusiasm is contagious. Britain is fortunate to have diplomats with his skills and drive’
Emma Sky, New Statesman

‘Welcome to Britain’s new brand of diplomacy’
Evening Standard

‘On Her Majesty’s Service, in a new way. Britain’s mould-breaking ambassador was appointed at only 36 at the height of the Arab Uprisings. Fletcher’s Naked Diplomacy was a new brand of 21st-century statecraft: flexible transparent, engaged with the public as much as with politicians’
BBC World Service

"A call for us all to reconsider our place in society and in our interconnected world. It urges us to be brave, creative, involved and connected. Diplomacy, he insists, is too important to be left to diplomats and he calls on us “citizen diplomats” to engage with it, to wield power ... As the pages turned, I thought this read increasingly as a new manifesto, and I finished it thinking how unsurprised I would be if Fletcher ended up running the Foreign Office, or the country’
Anthony Sattin, Observer

‘Brilliant, funny polemic ... a cracking read’
Roger Boyes
The Times (11 June 2016)

‘A brilliant book’
Stig Abell, LBC and Editor of the Times Literary Supplement

‘A diplomatic genius’
Gordon Brown
