During the early Cold War, the complex relationship between communities in Europe and the United States was of concern to those on both sides of the Atlantic. Using archival research and recorded interviews, this book charts the development of American Studies in Europe during that period. It demonstrates how negotiations took place through a network of relationships among state bureaucracy, philanthropic foundations, and European scholars. Each interaction within this network had the potential to change the odds of a particular outcome occurring. Through analysis of these interactions, the book identifies factors which are influential in the conduct of successful collaborative public diplomacy and draws lessons for public diplomacy in an age when communities are connected through multi-hub, multi-directional networks.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a remarkable manuscript by one of today's leading and highly respected young scholars specializing in the theory and practice of public diplomacy – a rapidly growing field of academic study. Fisher's book marshals and critically examines an extraordinary range of scholarly literature in two distinct but related areas of inquiry – current theories of networks and collaborative public diplomacy and the origins and development of American Studies in Europe during the second half of the 20th century. Scholars in the field, and increasingly forward-leaning practitioners, will not be disappointed with Collaborative Public Diplomacy, given its scholarship and erudition."- Bruce Gregory, Professorial Lecturer, School of Media and Public Diplomacy, George Washington University
