The book specifically deals with strategic communication, which is now used and debated by the US government. This incisive book is written particularly for those new to strategic communication and clarifies the definitional controversy, looks at the context of the word and its application and supports a specific realistic definition. But that’s just the start. In addition, the author Christopher Paul discusses hundreds of government reports on strategic communication and public diplomacy, published since 2000, explores specific proposals for improving strategic communication and discussing differences in the US Policy. Mostly, he provides unity and clarification on how to handle the “War of Ideas” by fully integrated and coordinated acts and communications, and how to coordinate the various elements of the government.
