About this book

Front Line Public Diplomacy explains how American diplomats at US embassies abroad communicate with foreign publics to support American national interests, countering misperceptions and hostile portrayals of our country.

Reviews

"Ambassador William Rugh, one of the most distinguished American practitioners of the art of public diplomacy, has written a remarkable book. From basic principles through to the subtleties of today's social media this is the essential guide for any public diplomat headed for the field or for any analyst who wishes to understand how this essential element of international relations is practiced. This book will be required reading in diplomatic training classes in the US and one anticipates further afield also." - Nicholas J. Cull, Professor of Public Diplomacy, University of Southern California, USA

"Ambassador Rugh presents a comprehensive, current and insightful overview of US public diplomacy field operations, filling a long-vacant niche in real-world PD resources for professors and students. His deep background as a distinguished practitioner of PD makes for a nuanced, yet focused, presentation of the opportunities and challenges facing PD professionals past and present." - Elizabeth Whitaker, Georgetown University and George Washington University Adjunct Professor of Public Diplomacy, USA, and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and senior Public Diplomacy Officer

"As the role of public opinion in policy making continues to grow around the globe, there is increasing appreciation for the importance of public diplomacy as an aspect of U.S. foreign policy. Rugh picks up this theme, delivering an expert account not only of the 'theory' of what public diplomacy is and how to best practice it; he also shares insightful, real-world examples, drawn both from his own extensive professional experience and from the now rather considerable PD literature. Reflecting his own passion, Rugh describes PD as a profession and a commitment, more a 'calling' than a 'job.'...Ambassador Rugh has provided an invaluable resource to the field of public diplomacy, one destined to become indispensible in the teaching of PD tradecraft, as well as a go-to reference for current practitioners in the field." - Middle East Policy

"The book is a perfect text to be included in the study of American foreign policy or diplomacy, especially in the Middle East. It is a must-read for any incoming Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and/or Public Affairs, not to mention high-level military commanders in the field who have been running their own public diplomacy operations." - International Journal of Middle East Studies
