Cultural Diplomacy: Beyond the National Interest? Paperback / softback
Cultural Diplomacy: Beyond the National Interest? is the first book bringing together, from the perspective of the cultural disciplines, scholarship that locates contemporary cultural diplomacy practices within their social, political, and ideological contexts, while examining the different forces that drive them.
The contributions to this book have two methodologies: the first, to deconstruct and demystify cultural diplomacy, notably the 'hype' that accompanies it, especially when it is yoked to the notion of 'soft power'; the second, to better understand how contemporary cultural diplomacy actually operates.
In applying a cultural lens to the question, this book probes whether there can be such a thing as a cultural diplomacy 'beyond the national interest'.
This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Cultural Policy.
