Secrecy, pomp and elitism may have dictated diplomatic strategy of the Cold War era, but in a digitised twenty-first century, inclusivity and transparency are values of increasing importance. Access to information is being democratised for a global citizenry, and nowadays everyone is a potential diplomat. From the handover of Hong Kong to recent high-profile political scandal, former diplomat Kerry Brown explores the chequered relationship between the UK and China, offering fresh insights into the fraught and ever-changing dynamic between these two countries. Whats Wrong With Diplomacy? is a call to arms and a probing indictment of diplomacys failure to adapt to a changing world.Part memoir, part advocacy, Kerry Browns compelling and provocative essay is a clarion call for a change in the UKs diplomatic practices.
