The Public Diplomacy Reader is a 500-page compendium of intellectual and practical tools for the cross-cultural communicator. Designed for students, diplomats, military officers, intelligence professionals and other practitioners, the Reader is meant to be used as an instrument and guide in waging the war of ideas. Naval War College Professor of Strategy Carnes Lord describes The Public Diplomacy Reader as “a unique and outstanding compilation of materials on public diplomacy.”
Former Voice of America Director Robert R. Reilly says the book “brings the wealth of experience and knowledge” of an experienced public diplomacy practitioner to “both students and anyone wishing to win ‘the war of ideas.'”
The Public Diplomacy Reader is edited by J. Michael Waller, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Professor of International Communication at The Institute of World Politics in Washington, D.C., and author of the ground-breaking 2007 book, Fighting the War of Ideas like a Real War.
