Overview

Digital Diplomacy provides a comprehensive overview of the major milestones in United States international communications and information policy, from the early days of the Morse telegraph to the current Internet explosion. The book underlines the growing importance of the communications issues, particularly as they affect American leadership in a rapidly changing information environment.

Dizard, a former foreign service officer, rejects the idea of a computer-based telediplomacy, arguing instead that the new technologies should be used primarily to strengthen the capabilities of American diplomats in dealing with information-age issues. A must read for those interested in the future of United States foreign policy, and a stimulating overview for scholars, researchers, and students involved in the subject.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In a study begun in 1996 when the author was the manager of a White House survey on the political implications of the-then new communications satellite technology, Dizard investigates how US diplomacy is being transformed in the global information age. He traces the origins of what he terms "digital diplomacy" back to the telegraph era; then discusses policy and technical standards challenges, threats to global information flows, negotiation of electronics trade, and prospects for diplomatic adaptation to the new culture. Dizard is with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, DC, with whose cooperation this volume was published. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
