The Art of Negotiation

The Art of Negotiation

The Art of Negotiation A G Noorani Modern International Negotiation by Arthur Lall ; Columbia University THE Clausewitz dictum that war is diplomacy is often recalled but its implications are seldom remembered. Curiously, while much thought and labour have been bestowed on strategic doctrine and the conduct of war, the art of negotiation has been largely neglected. One finds works on the technical aspects of diplomacy, but none on the art proper. Now, after Fred C Ikle 's book "How Nations Negotiate" appears Arthur Lall's work drawing heavily on his long experience as a veteran Indian diplomat He has laboured hard and delved into diplomatic records, but the more interesting part of the book is Lall's recollections of the disarmament conferences in Geneva, the 1956 Suez Canal conference in London, the Laos conference, the Belgrade conference of the non- aligned and the negotiations at the UN.
