New Edition of the ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science Published
The USC Center on Public Diplomacy is proud to announce the March 2008 publication of the ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science. Entitled “Public Diplomacy in a Changing World,” the issue is edited by Geoffrey Cowan and Nicholas Cull and includes several contributions from members of the CPD community.
This volume of The Annals follows four previous volumes which the American Academy of Political and Social Science has published on various aspects of the subject now widely called public diplomacy. The topics of the earlier Annals issues were the U.S. image abroad (1954), international education (1961), the exchange of persons (1976), and the Fulbright experience (1987).
This newest volume includes essays on international broadcasting and place branding. Below is a list of the articles;

With its broad range of coverage, and its scope of ambition, the Cowan-Cull Annals volume on “Public Diplomacy in a Changing World” may well become a landmark, as a valuable reference work and a current assessment of an expanding field."
