Americana in Arabic Library
There has been a wonderful public response to my plea for contributions to the Global Americana Institute and our hopes to get the works of Ben Franklin, Thomas jefferson, and others into Arabic.
The interest has been so great that I thought I would tip readers to two important web sites on public diplomacy.
One is the USC Center on Public Diplomacy.
The other is The Public Diplomacy Web Site of the United States Information Agency Alumni Association.
I am arguing that US government-backed public diplomacy is just not getting the job done, and that we have to move to a new model of civil society organizations and grass roots support for it.
