The book is an in-depth study and understanding of a wide range of materials – documents, memoirs, investigations – on both national diplomacy and diplomatic services in other countries. The author shares his own experience of work in foreign delegations and the foreign service central office. Numerous examples – vivid and didactic in nature – of international diplomatic practice, unfold the evolution which diplomacy and the diplomatic profession along with functions and work tactics underwent.

The basic professional and human sides of 'diplomatic craft' are highlighted, as are the problems associated with forming and selecting diplomatic cadres. Also brought to the fore are relationships during service and in the 'habitat', the status and role of diplomats' wives, questions on payment of labour.

In all, the reader can receive quite a comprehensive understanding about the prestigious profession of diplomats and the multifaceted tasks that they perform.
