Force and Statecraft: Diplomatic Challenges of Our Time, Sixth Edition, is a stimulating, highly readable, and insightful analysis of humanity's quest for peace and security. Its unique interdisciplinary approach combines history, political science, international law, and philosophy in order to explore the rich experience of the past and consider how it can be brought to bear on the diplomatic challenges that we confront in our world today.

This new edition makes a classic even better. It provides an up-to-date treatment of the most recent and significant international developments, including:

- the profound impact of the foreign policies of three individuals: Donald Trump of the United States, Xi Jinping of China, and Vladimir Putin of Russia
- growing fears of nuclear proliferation in North Korea and Iran, "Brexit" and divisions within the European Union and NATO, the civil war in Syria, the Islamic State (ISIS), and other terrorist groups
- updated and thought-provoking coverage of the instruments of statecraft, the multiple dimensions of power, the nature of security (including "the security dilemma" and the "indivisibility of security"), the changing features of sovereignty, and the role of normative values as seen in ethical restraints, concepts of legitimacy, international law, and norms of human rights
- evolving challenges for force and statecraft presented by weapons of mass destruction, the diplomatic revolution, the "digital revolution," cyberattacks, climate change, and the global pandemic of COVID-19
