IWP’s new academic imprint, The Institute of World Politics Press, announces its first four books now in production.
The first, Fighting the War of Ideas like a Real War, is a monograph outlining a message strategy against terrorists and international extremists. The publication has been featured on Fox News. Armed Forces Journal says “this guide offers ways that could discredit, divide and ultimately squelch the enemy into a blob of irrelevance.”
Almost ready for release is the long-awaited Public Diplomacy Reader, a 500-page compendium of writings, historical material and government documents that serves as a primer for the public diplomacy and strategic communication specialist.
Third in line, due for release this summer, is Strategic Influence: Public Diplomacy, Counterpropaganda and Political Warfare. The edited volume is designed to serve as a comprehensive textbook for scholars and practitioners in the war of ideas.
The fourth book, Counterintelligence: Reform for a New National Capability, contains the edited proceedings of an IWP conference that contributed to the development of the U.S. government’s first national counterintelligence strategy.
The IWP Press books are written and edited by Institute faculty. Strategic Influence contains cutting-edge chapters written by IWP graduate students. IWP Press expects to provide more publishing opportunities for its top-flight students and alumni.
