PDiN Monitor April Issue Out Now

Dedicated to the graduating members of the USC Association of Public Diplomacy Scholars, the April issue of PDiN Monitor, CPD's electronic review of public diplomacy in the news, is devoted to PD Publications.

Given what seems to be a bounty of publications relevant to public diplomacy studies and practice this year – a newsworthy fact in itself, the April issue of PDiN Monitor focuses on one of several publication outputs of the Center, the CPD Book Reviews.

In this issue:

  • The PDiN Roundup collects PD news from around the world in the following categories: Cultural Diplomacy / Government PD / Media & PD / Nation Branding / New Technology / Non-State PD / Public Opinion / Soft Power. Included in this section are three CPD Book Reviews: Philip Seib's reviews of Professor Zaharna's latest publication on U.S. Strategic Communication and Public Diplomacy since 9/11 and of a volume on Japan's Cultural Diplomacy by Ambassador Ogoura. Kishore Mahbubani's Beyond the Age of Innocence: Rebuilding Trust Between America and the World, was reviewed by CPD Consular Liaison Yael Swerdlow.

  • In PDiN Extras, Executive Director of Fulbright Canada Michael Hawes takes a closer look at Canada's commitment to a soft power strategy, and MPD graduate student Taleen Ananian ties together a group of international headlines from April dealing with soft and hard power.

  • PD in Print presents a selection of the latest blogs and publications from CPD.
