Addressing the impact of the Russian Revolution on diplomacy, and analyzing questions surrounding change and continuity in Russian and Soviet diplomacy in the transition from the Russian Empire to the Soviet Union, the book examines how Russia's diplomacy was conducted, the diplomats behind it, and the institutional cultures of the late Tsarist and early Soviet foreign ministries. Topics covered include the changes brought to Russian diplomacy by the 1905 Revolution and the First World War, the effect of the Russian Revolution on diplomacy, the establishment of the Soviet diplomatic corps and the steps taken to integrate the Soviets into the diplomatic world during the 1920s and 1930s.
