BEACON SOFT POWER AND PUBLIC DIPLOMACY SERIES:DAY 3
For Wednesday's segment of the series, Paul Kretkowski's Beacon
features a post by Dr. Nicholas Cull
, the new head of the University of Southern California’s Center on Public Diplomacy. A excerpt:"Public Diplomacy Dateline 1940: The British Cultivate Edward R. MurrowMy all-time public diplomacy coup would be the British decision to cultivate Edward R. Murrow as a means to address the neutral U.S. in 1940. It paid off big-time, both drawing the U.S. into the Second World War and building lasting links between British and U.S. broadcasting communities. I also suspect that Murrow's approach to public diplomacy was much influenced by his British experiences."
