The Origins of Public Diplomacy in US StatecraftA debut book by Dr. Caitlin E. Schindler (IWP Class of 2010) was recently published:  The Origins of Public Diplomacy in U.S. Statecraft: Uncovering a Forgotten Tradition. This book is a part of Palgrave Macmillan’s “Series in Global Public Diplomacy.”

Dr. Schindler’s book explores diplomacy through an in-depth examination of six important U.S. historical case studies. Significantly, she also demonstrates the application of her findings in contemporary international relations. Comprehensive and informed, this historical analysis is a must-read for anyone interested in American history and diplomacy.

Dr. Schindler, having graduated from IWP in 2010 with a Master of Arts in Strategic Intelligence, has experience working as both a technical writer and executive officer with a U.S. defense contractor. She also works at the Institute as a research professor. Schindler received her Ph.D. in U.S. Historical Public Diplomacy from the University of Leeds.

Dr. Schindler has spoken on public diplomacy at IWP on several occasions. In 2015, she discussed “New Century, Same Problems: U.S. Public Diplomacy in Context.” She spoke as a part of the 2017 Kosciuszko Chair Spring Symposium on the topic of “A Bear in Sheep’s Skin? Russian Public Diplomacy.”

Dr. Schindler will discuss her new book at IWP on October 23
