"Working at the rich interface of social theory and international relations theory, Jason Dittmer provides a novel and important rereading of diplomatic practice, demonstrating how diplomacy and international relations are profoundly influenced by material and bodily contexts. Diplomatic Material speaks to the pressing debates in social theory and international relations, making this important book one of the best in its field." — Mark B. Salter, editor of Making Things International 1 and Making Things International 2
"Jason Dittmer innovatively combines multiple literatures and empirical cases to render familiar issues in novel ways. His engaging writing makes the work accessible to undergraduates. Diplomatic Material will be of interest to those working in diplomacy, assemblage theory, and more-than-human approaches in political geography and international relations." — Merje Kuus, author of Geopolitics and Expertise: Knowledge and Authority in European Diplomacy
