Diplomacy in international relations is the daily interaction between states often through the use of negotiations and discussions. International diplomacy takes place in the world system, and through a number of events, conversations, communications, et. .International diplomats speak in person, through electronic communications, as well as representatives. Many times these meetings are public and private. International diplomacy has been an integral part of international relations for centuries, and yet, continues to be a critical component of international relations work. As Hocking et. al. (2012) explain in their discussion of international diplomacy, the practice of public diplomacy has assumed centre stage.

Without diplomacy much of the world’s affairs, and organizations, would not exist. There are many examples of how diplomacy has affected countries, and even individual citizens. For the upkeep of the International System, diplomacy is used in every corner of the world. Without it many nations would not be able to conduct successful negotiations. While many are not able to find a clear beginning or creation of diplomacy, modern diplomacy has become much more advanced and many aspects have changed over the years. no country has influenced international relations as decisively and at the same time as ambivalently as the United States. No society, has more firmly insisted on the inadmissibility of intervention in the domestic affairs of other states, or more passionately asserted that its own values were universally applicable.

Israel–Jordan relations refers to diplomatic, economic and cultural relations between Israel and Jordan. The two countries have had official diplomatic relations since the 1994 signing of the Israel–Jordan peace treaty  . In the 1967 Six Day War, Jordan aligned itself with Nasser's Egypt despite an Israeli warning. This resulted in the loss of East Jerusalem and the West Bank to Israel. This was an economic loss to the kingdom since much of the kingdom's economy was based in the West Bank. The war against the PLO factions may have strengthened the connections between Israel and Jordan.

In international relations, diplomacy is inevitably driven by changing events, if not exclusively so. The points of contact between states have increased dramatically.

A diplomat lives in the country that he is trying to communicate with. They are placed in strategic locations that are close to many local government buildings, allowing all diplomats to quickly establish contact and begin their jobs of speaking with the foreign rulers. They are also granted something called diplomatic immunity to protect them while in a foreign country, and to allow them to do their job well. Usually a diplomat’s main goal is to simply maintain good relations with the country in question

Jacob Rosen writes in this fascinating and illuminating book about his experiences in both Cairo, Egypt and Amman, Jordan as an Israeli Diplomat. He has learned a great deal about Egyptian and Jordanian societies and also more about the Israeli character. Time and again, Mr. Rosen witnessed how Arabs and Western Cultures simply do not understand each other. The vignettes assembled in this book are based on real events. Mr. Rosen makes each of these stories stand on its own merit. The approach is anthropological, rather than political, and maybe through sharing these stories, this book can explain why and how the Arabs and the Israelis (and perhaps the West) fail to understand one another. They also show that after all is said and done, we are human beings who share the same concerns and inspirations.

I remember Jacob and his wife, Annette, from our time residing together in Amman. Both charming and wonderful. This books brings back some memories.

Jacob Rosen's book is hilarious, as well as serious
in parts, giving an insight into the peoples of the
Middle East.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to
know and understand the different nations living side
by side, who do not even understand themselves!
An excellent light hearted short-story book of the
daily lives of the average person in the Middle East
and which should be read by and be on the bookshelves
of every home and book shop in the region.
Well, done Mr. Rosen for sharing your experiences
and having this book published for the world to
read.

Jacob Rosen, a seasoned diplomat writes a serious, but entertaining book about his experiences in the diplomatic world which takes him on assignments throughout the Arab world. A collection of short stories that at times can be very amusing and at others, quite thought provoking. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to get a better understanding of the Arab-Israeli conflict throughan unreported look at the culture and every day life of Arabs and Israelis.

Hello Jacob, I loved your book. I understand now that the problems in the Middle East are not so easy to solve. But the world needs people like you, who have understanding for other meanings and believes. Your stories are short but do have a deeper meening and are somethimes very sad. I hope that a new book of you will soon be ready. I will again order it a.s.a.p. at Amazon.com.
best regards and greetings to your family.

If you want to read a book that can bring you to a deeper grasp of the Arab culture, try this one. Mr. Rosens book brings to your table a thoroughly digestable understanding of the ins and outs of Arab life.
