Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A new type of transnational activist has emerged, both co-operating and competing with established diplomatic practitioners. Movie stars, musicians, and CEOs have grabbed new roles on the world stage, simultaneously levering their access to world leaders and mass audiences. The global system is increasingly open to and challenged by their participation in a manner that very few would have anticipated. Blending an appreciation of both complex forms of diplomacy and the exciting but unpredictable dynamics of popular culture, Andrew F. Cooper brings focus to this significant, yet under-analyzed, area of international relations.”
