Inventing public diplomacy : the story of the U.S. Information Agency by Wilson P Dizard( )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Public diplomacy - the uncertain art of winning public support abroad for one's government and its foreign policy - constitutes a critical instrument of U.S. policy in the wake of the Bush administration's recent military interventions and its renunciation of widely accepted international accords. Wilson Dizard, Jr. offers the first comprehensive account of public diplomacy's evolution within the U.S. foreign policy establishment, ranging from World War II to the present." "Dizard focuses on the U.S. Information Agency and its precursor, the Office of War Information. Tracing the political ups and downs determining the agency's trajectory, he highlights its instrumental role in creating the policies and programs underpinning today's public diplomacy, as well as the people involved. The USIA was shut down in 1999, but it left an important legacy of what works - and what doesn't - in presenting U.S. policies and values to the rest of the world. Inventing Public Diplomacy is a history of U.S. efforts at organized international propaganda."--Jacket
Television : a world view by Wilson P Dizard( Book )

14 editions published between 1966 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the purposes is to provide students of ·this subject with an over-all view of the current television scene throughout the globe. the work will be useful to the American television industry, particularly in enlarging its perspective of the medium's world role. For the present, the industry views overseas television almost exclusively in terms of an export market. This is a legitimate part of our national interest, but it is also a limited one. The long-range American role in international TV is going to be determined primarily by the attitudes and the action of the domestic TV industry. This work will prove useful to laymen concerned about our future in a world where the tides of social and political pluralism threaten to undermine the structure of an evolving world order. Our national ability to communicate effectively with three billion members of alien cultures is crucial in this process. Television, bringing the sights and sounds of our dialogue to Everyman's front parlor, is the most dramatic advance in mass-media technology since the invention of the printing press. Its capabilities are directly relevant to our national effort to build a stable democratic world order. The medium itself is neutral: it can be used to transmit the dialogue of free men building such an order or the commands of a dictator trying to prevent it. If my survey has any pretensions, they lie in the direction of attempting to influence a positive American response to this particular challenge
Digital diplomacy : U.S. foreign policy in the information age by Wilson P Dizard( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the impact of the Internet and other advanced technologies on the United States foreign policy agenda and the ways in which it is managed. Digital diplomacy provides a comprehensive overview of the major milestones in United States international communications and information policy, from the early days of the Morse telegraph to the current Internet explosion. The book underlines the growing importance of the communications issues, particularly as they affect American leadership in a rapidly-changing information environment. Dizard rejects the idea of a computer-based "telediplomacy," arguing instead that the new technologies should be used primarily to strengthen the capabilities of American diplomats in dealing with information-age issues
