Summary

This chapter describes the political, economic, military, and psychological importance of diplomatic recognition and international acceptance. It begins with an overview of the debates over the legal effect of recognition as well as historical trends in the practice of state recognition over time. Finally, it will compare each of their individual quests to win international recognition, efforts which sometimes were traditionally diplomatic in nature, but were also often unorthodox, and occasionally involved comically inept schemes.
