PD-related articles (from Google Search) 10/10/2016-10/21/2016

A (sad?) editorial note from your devoted Public Diplomacy Press and Blog Review compiler: These days, there are essentially no substantive (most important, innovative) "news" about PD, except perhaps re the oh-so-early-21st-century-primitive-social-media, so far as I can tell. 

True, there are scattered items (many of them of minor interest) cited by the USC Center on Public Diplomacy, and perhaps some nuggets on the internet on how public diplomacy -- as I've suggested, abandoned by the USG -- has (ironically) gone global (e.g. South Korea, India, Ghana). But nothing to lose sleep about.

So, instead of providing details on individual articles on PD, in the future I'll simply post, if time permits, off and on, what Google tells us (most importantly, in my modest opinion) about them -- the PD articles -- for the PD historical record, not always assured on the Internet.

For "scholarly," substantive articles on PD (which, quite frankly, I -- privileged to be a former PD diplomat -- never considered an academic "discipline," but something you learn about by actually doing it), please consult Bruce Gregory's invaluable listing
