Examines the impact of the Internet and other advanced technologies on the United States foreign policy agenda and the ways in which it is managed. Digital Diplomacy provides a comprehensive overview of the major milestones in United States international communications and information policy, from the early days of the Morse telegraph to the current internet explosion. The book underlines the growing importance of the communications issues, particularly as they affect American leadership in a rapidly-changing information environment. Dizard, a former foreign service officer, rejects the idea of a computer-based "telediplomacy," arguing instead that the new technologies should be used primarily to strengthen the capabilities of American diplomats in dealling with information-age issues. A reading for those interested in the future of United States foreign policy, and a stimulating overview for scholars, researchers, and students involved in the subject.
