2006 (English)In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, Vol. 31, no 2, 144-150 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This paper offers an introduction to the following papers, which represent the results Of a round table at the Nordiska Historikermote 2004 in Stockholm. It discusses the renewed interest in the study of diplomacy and international politics. This revival during the past few decades is sometimes not more than a reinvention of the old diplomatic history. However, it is also influenced by the history of ideas, as elaborated by Anglo-American historians, and modern cultural sociology. The history of diplomacy seen from the perspective of cultural transfer offers new insights into early modem diplomacy based on a new reading of well-known material.
