Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1957, Lester B. Pearson here speaks of the problems and hazards that face diplomats and diplomacy today. Pearson urges that heads of state and foreign ministers reduce their individual diplomacy. He asks that the ambassador be accorded once more a station of responsibility and authority. Speaking of another new factor in diplomacy today, the United Nations, the author describes the many real advances made in international cooperation and toward international authority.
