“The strength of this volume lies in its focus on public diplomacy outside the traditional domains of high profile policies and the rise of the national security state. Unquestionably there are benefits from historical studies of Cold War public diplomacy and more recent scholarship on campaigns to combat violent extremism. But, as this book demonstrates there is a great deal to be learned from public diplomacy strategies and methods of actors in other contexts… The greatest value of these essays is not in their occasional discourse on public diplomacy theory. It is their innovative approaches to diplomatic history and rich load of empirical evidence that will be most useful to theorists and practitioners.” (The Hague Journal of Diplomacy, 2010)

“The United States and Public Diplomacy showcases fascinating new research into the history of public diplomacy. Each essay adds a fresh perspective to the narrative with impressive research and writing throughout. Collectively, they represent a significant contribution to the emerging literature on public diplomacy.” University of Southern California Center on Public Diplomacy (2010) [Full review]
