"An extremely well-written book"
The Foreign Service Journal
"Seib delivers a stimulating and exciting book that invites dialogue about diplomacy, social media, and the public square. His new work reverberates with the same energy as the information revolution described in it. A must-read for those interested in the intersection of media and diplomacy."
Tara Sonenshine, former under secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs
"What a stimulating and illuminating theme–that the once insular world of secret diplomacy has been utterly transformed by new media, with consequences huge and uncertain. Thanks to Seib's insights and graceful writing, we discover and learn about the pluses and minuses of the new world of diplomacy."
Marvin Kalb, senior adviser to the Pulitzer Center, and Harvard Professor Emeritus
"In a world of the fastest evolution ever, Philip Seib contributes to the ongoing debate in diplomatic studies with a short yet very accurate and interesting title that mixes the current points of view on both the communications' and international relations' epistemic communities."
The Hague Journal of Diplomacy
'A comprehensive analysis of the changes social media is prompting in how governments manage foreign policy.'
