Selling war : the British propaganda campaign against American "neutrality" in World War II by Nicholas John Cull( )

26 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 2,664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British propaganda brought America to the brink of war, and left it to the Japanese and Hitler to finish the job." So concludes Nicholas Cull in this absorbing study of how the United States was transformed from isolation to belligerence in the years before the attack on Pearl Harbor. From the moment it realized that all was lost without American aid, the British Government employed a host of persuasive tactics to draw the U.S. to its rescue. With the help of talents as varied as those of matinee idol Leslie Howard, Oxford philosopher Isaiah Berlin and society photographer Cecil Beaton, no section of America remained untouched and no methodfrom Secret Service intrigue to the publication of horrifying pictures of Nazi atrocities - remained untried. The British sought and won the support of key journalists and broadcasters, including Edward R. Murrow, Dorothy Thompson, and Walter Winchell: Hollywood film makers also played a willing part. Cull details these and other propaganda activities, covering the entire range of the British effort. A fascinating story of how a foreign country promoted America's involvement in its greatest war, Selling War will appeal to all those interested in the modern cultural and political history of Britain and the United States

Projecting empire : imperialism and popular cinema by James Chapman( )

19 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular cinema is saturated with images and narratives of empire. With Projecting Empire, Chapman and Cull have written the first major study of imperialism and cinema for over thirty years. This welcome text maps the history of empire cinema in both Hollywood and Britain through a serious of case studies of popular films including biopics, adventures, literary adaptations, melodramas, comedies and documentaries, from the 1930s and The Four Feathers to the present, with Indiana Jones and Three Kings. The authors consider industry-wide trends and place the films in their wider cultural and historical contexts. Using primary sources that include private papers, they look at the presence of particular auteurs in the cinema of Imperialism, including Korda, Lean, Huston and Attenborough, as well as the actors who brought the stories to life, such as Elizabeth Taylor and George Clooney. At a time when imperialism has a new significance in the world, this book will fulfil the needs of students and interested filmgoers alike
Projecting tomorrow : science fiction and popular cinema by James Chapman( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cinema and science fiction were made for each other. The science fiction genre has produced some of the most extraordinary films ever made, yet science fiction cinema is about more than just special effects. It has also provided a vehicle for filmmakers and writers to comment on their own societies and cultures. This new exploration of the genre examines landmark science fiction films from the 1930s to the present. They include genre classics such as 'Things to Come', 'Forbidden Planet' and '2001: A Space Odyssey' alongside modern blockbusters 'Star Wars' and 'Avatar'. Chapman and Cull consider both screen originals and adaptations of the work of major science fiction authors. They also range widely across the genre from pulp adventure and space opera to political allegory and speculative documentary - there is even a science fiction musical. (Editor)
The Cold War and the United States Information Agency : American propaganda and public diplomacy, 1945-1989 by Nicholas John Cull( Book )

27 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published at a time when the U.S. government's public diplomacy is in crisis, this book provides an exhaustive account of how it used to be done. The United States Information Agency was created, in 1953, to "tell America's story to the world" and, by engaging with the world through international information, broadcasting, culture, and exchange programs, became an essential element of American foreign policy during the Cold War. Based on newly declassified archives and more than 100 interviews with veterans of public diplomacy, from the Truman administration to the fall of the Berlin Wall, Nicholas J. Cull relates both the achievements and the endemic flaws of American public diplomacy in this period."--Jacket
Alambrista and the U.S.-Mexico border : film, music, and stories of undocumented immigrants( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alambrista," a groundbreaking 1977 full-length fiction film about undocumented immigrants, is accompanied by "Children of the fields," documentary on migrant children and a volume exploring the historical and political context of the film in a collection of scholarly essays, along with essays on film criticism and analysis as they relate to the project
The decline and fall of the United States Information Agency : American public diplomacy, 1989-2001 by Nicholas John Cull( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At a time when issues of international engagement are again at the fore of foreign policy, this book tells the story of how the United States's apparatus for public diplomacy came to be in disarray. Using newly declassified archives and interviews with practitioners, Nicholas J. Cull has pieced together the story of the final decade in the life of the United States Information Agency. It is both a sorry tale of political neglect and missed opportunities and an account of what America's public diplomats were nevertheless able to accomplish. Major episodes include the transition of Eastern Europe to democracy, the role of public diplomacy in the First Gulf War and Kosovo Wars, the US interventions in Somalia and Haiti, and the buildup to the attacks of 9/11"--

Public diplomacy : foundations for global engagement in the digital age by Nicholas John Cull( Book )

15 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New technologies have opened up fresh possibilities for public diplomacy, but this has not erased the importance of history. On the contrary, the lessons of the past seem more relevant than ever, in an age in which communications play an unprecedented role. Whether communications are electronic or hand-delivered, the foundations remain as valid today as they ever have been. Blending history with insights from international relations, communication studies, psychology, and contemporary practice, Cull explores the five core areas of public diplomacy: listening, advocacy, cultural diplomacy, exchanges, and international broadcasting. He unpacks the approaches which have dominated in recent years -- nation-branding and partnership -- and sets out the foundations for successful global public engagement. Rich with case studies and examples drawn from ancient times through to our own digital age, the book shows the true capabilities and limits of emerging platforms and technologies, as well as drawing on lessons from the past which can empower us and help us to shape the future. This comprehensive and accessible introduction is essential reading for students, scholars, and practitioners, as well as anyone interested in understanding or mobilizing global public opinion."--
Canada's public diplomacy by Nicholas John Cull( )

7 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a timely resource for the debate around "revitalizing" Canada's public diplomacy, bringing together some of the top scholars of Canadian public diplomacy and practitioners past and present to build a one-stop shop for thinking on the past, present, and future of Canadian engagement with foreign publics. The volume builds on Justin Trudeau's media profile and the success of Canada's image in 2016 but does not stop at the Niagara frontier post. Canada is a significant and under-discussed case of public diplomacy, and its experience as a middle power is more likely to be applicable to others than the experience of the usual case of the United States. Offering a comprehensive discussion of a major non-US case in contemporary public diplomacy and soft power, contributors also explore new angles of public diplomacy, including city, gift, art, and archaeological diplomacy as well as digital diplomacy
U.S. public diplomacy and democratization in Spain : selling democracy? by Francisco J Rodríguez( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the post-war relationship began, Spain was an unlikely candidate for American influence. By the end of the 30s, the Franco dictatorship had adopted Fascist symbols and made common cause with the Axis nations. In 1948, Cold war concerns prompted a slow rapprochement in between Washington and Madrid, leading to the instauration of U.S. military bases in Spanish territory. Both countries had done a political conjuring trick and formalized a marriage of convenience. This volume examines the several US public diplomacy strategies to accomplish an almost impossible mission: to keep a warm relation with a friendly tyrant without drifting apart from Spanish opposition to the dictatorship, and eventually to pave the way for transition to democracy"--

Routledge handbook of public diplomacy by Nancy Snow( )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second edition of the Routledge Handbook of Public Diplomacy co-edited by two leading scholars in the international relations subfield of public diplomacy, includes 16 more chapters from the first. Ten years later, a new global landscape of public diplomacy has taken shape, with major programs in graduate-level public diplomacy studies worldwide. What separates this handbook from others is its legacy and continuity from the first edition. This first edition line-up was more military-focused than this edition, a legacy to the work of Philip M. Taylor, to whom this updated edition is dedicated. This edition includes U.S. content but all case studies are outside the U.S., not only to appeal to a global audience of scholars and practitioners, but also as a way of offering something fresher than the US/UK-centric competition. In Parts 1-4, original contributors are retained, many with revised editions, but new faces emerge. Parts 5 and 6 include sixteen global case studies in public diplomacy, expanding the number of contributors by ten. The concluding part of the book includes chapters on digital and corporate public diplomacy, and a signature final chapter on the Noosphere and Noopolitik as they relate to public diplomacy. Designed for a broad audience, The Routledge Handbook of Public Diplomacy is encyclopedic in its range and depth of content, yet is written in an accessible style that will appeal to both undergraduate and postgraduate students"--

Competition or cooperation? : a comparative analysis of the public diplomacy of the European Union and selected member states by Alice Srugies( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diese Dissertation erforscht europäische Public Diplomacy auf nationaler, regionaler und transnationaler Ebene auf Basis einer vergleichenden empirischen Studie. Die Arbeit konzentriert sich auf die Europäische Kommission sowie den Europäischen Auswärtigen Dienst als EU-Institutionen sowie Frankreich und Schweden als EU-Mitgliedsstaaten. Sie betrachtet Public Diplomacy aus einer Organisationsperspektive und geht den Fragen nach, 1) wie Organisationen der EU sowie der ausgewählten Mitgliedsstaaten Public Diplomacy verstehen und praktizieren und, 2) inwieweit Public Diplomacy-Aktivitäten auf EU- und Mitgliedsstaatenebene einander ergänzen oder konfligieren. Diese Dissertation entwickelt ein interdisziplinäres Forschungsmodell, das vor allem Ansätze der Public Diplomacy-Forschung, der Kommunikationswissenschaft, der Soziologie sowie der Organisationstheorie verknüpft und so einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Theorieentwicklung im Forschungsfeld Public Diplomacy leistet. Darüber hinaus trägt sie maßgeblich zur Erweiterung des empirisch fundierten Kenntnisstandes zu europäischer Public Diplomacy bei. Anhand einer qualitativen Analyse von Strategiedokumenten sowie Experteninterviews mit Public Diplomacy-Praktikern zeigt diese Studie, dass sowohl Frankreich als auch Schweden einen eher zentralisierten Public Diplomacy-Ansatz verfolgen. EU Public Diplomacy ist hingegen durch eine dezentrale Struktur und getrennte Kommunikationsstrategien für Zielgruppen innerhalb und außerhalb der EU gekennzeichnet. Die beiden untersuchten Mitgliedsstaaten definieren vor allem persuasive Public Diplomacy-Ziele und betrachten Public Diplomacy primär als Instrument zur Realisierung nationaler Interessen. Während französische Organisationen die EU als Forum zur Förderung nationaler Interessen nutzen, verweisen schwedische Organisationen weder in ihren Public Diplomacy-Zielen noch in Public Diplomacy-Botschaften explizit auf die EU. Der Umfang und die Qualität der Zusammenarbeit zwischen französischen, schwedischen und EU-Organisationen hängen in hohem Maße vom politischen Willen der Mitgliedsstaaten ab. Die Befunde dieser Studie legen nahe, dass sowohl französische als auch schwedische Organisationen einen pragmatischen, oftmals projektbasierten Kooperationsansatz verfolgen, anstatt strategische, langfristige Kooperationsvereinbarungen mit der EU einzugehen
