U.S. Information Policy and Cultural Diplomacy. Headline Series No. 308.
Ninkovich, Frank
This booklet examines U.S. involvement with cultural diplomacy, emphasizing exchanges of persons and ideas that have lasting effects on relatively small numbers of people and information programs using the mass media to influence large numbers of people. Whereas the cultural exchange programs are internationalist in nature, promoting mutual and long term understanding between peoples, the information programs are in the nationalist tradition and are largely one way in direction and more political in thrust. Chapters include: (1) "Origins of U.S. Cultural and Informational Programs"; (2) "The Cold-War Struggle for the Minds of Men"; (3) "Conflicts and Conundrums"; and (4) "The Case for Cultural and Informational Programs." A set of discussion questions for classroom use and a 23-item reading list are included. (EH)
