Staff Reviews


France scrambles to get on the right side of the Iraqi war in this political satire that deserves to be ranked with Machiavelli's The Prince and House of Cards. One of the best books of the year! — Charles Bottomley

Praise For…


“Were I in the front row of the White House press briefing room, I would ask spokesman Jay Carney one question above all others: ‘Have you read Weapons of Mass Diplomacy, and if not, why not?’ It’s that good—insightful, like a tall mirror reflecting truth, hung in the halls of power.”

— The Washington Post

“The machinations at the ministry gave him the material for ‘Quai d’Orsay,’ a bande dessinée that he wrote under the pen name Abel Lanzac, with illustrations by Christophe Blain. . . . The book was recently brought out in English by the British publisher SelfMadeHero under the title ‘Weapons of Mass Diplomacy.’”

— The New York Times
