Matt Armstrong's blog on public diplomacy, international journalism, and the struggle against propaganda

Reading List

Draft … subject to change at any moment

I am often asked for reading lists relevant to public diplomacy, strategic communication, social media, and propaganda.  Fundamentally, each of these topics have a lot in common: they each look at understanding, informing, and influencing people.  Therefore, this list is not sectioned by discipline of the reader. Email me to suggest a resource that should be included below.  Cliff Gilmore contributed to this list.  See also Bruce Gregory’s periodic review of public diplomacy and strategic communication books and articles archived here.
