Key Studies in Diplomacy MUP Series

  • Provides the first extended study of the Fulbright program in a single country and brings fresh insights from the perspective of over sixty years of the Australian-American alliance
  • Extends historical knowledge of postwar cultural diplomacy with a compelling account of intertwining government priorities, program administration, and individual experience drawn from deep archival research and oral history
  • Exposes the significance of bi-national sponsored educational exchange in shaping the direction of academic inquiry, developing new academic disciplines and influencing the evolution of universities and research institutions
  • Offers a critical appraisal of Fulbright achievements and limitations in avoiding political influence, integrating gender and racial diversity, absorbing conflict and dissent, and responding to economic fluctuations and social change
