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)
