In his new book, The Art of Diplomacy: How American Negotiators Reached Historic Agreements that Changed the World, diplomat and negotiator Stuart E. Eizenstat provides a history of the major international agreements that have defined today’s world. Eizenstat examines cases from the treaty to end the Vietnam War to the Kyoto Protocols and the Iranian Nuclear Accord. Drawing upon experience and perspective as a participant in top-level negotiations and interviews with over 60 key figures in American diplomacy, including former presidents and secretaries of state, and major political figures abroad, Eizenstat recounts the events that led up to the negotiation, the drama that took place around the table, and draws lessons from successful and unsuccessful strategies and tactics.
