‘Diplomacy by design’ examines the profound connection between art produced during this period and its social context, revealing inanimate objects as catalysts – or even participants – in human dynamics. Feldman’s fascinating study shows the ways in which the exchange of these works of art actively mediated and strengthened political relations, intercultural interactions, and economic negotiations. Previous studies of this international style have focused almost exclusively on stylistic attribution at the expense of social contextualization. Written by a specialist in ancient Near Eastern art and archaeology who has excavated and traveled extensively in this area of the world, ‘Diplomacy by design’ provides a much broader consideration of the symbolic power of material culture and its centrality in the construction of human relations.
