Nature of Diplomacy

Bowers, Claude G.

New Republic;10/4/54, Vol. 131 Issue 14, p18
This article presents information on the book "The Limits of Foreign Policy," by Charles Burton Marshall. The five lectures by Charles Burton Marshall at Hollins College, now happily published, should be compulsory reading for many Americans who persuade themselves, if no others that they are better qualified to deal with international relations than men trained to the task in the foreign service. Marshall points out the difference between military planning and diplomatic planning. While he does not say so, he gives the impression that it may be a mistake to assign so many professional soldiers and big business men to the delicate task of diplomatic negotiations. Neither is trained for the job and only in the rarest cases are they temperamentally qualified.
