Public Diplomacy In Action

The Eagle and the Elephant
Here is an example of public diplomacy in action: The Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs has just published "The Eagle and the Elephant: Thai American Relations Since 1833" which was produced for the Thai Embassy in Washington by PDWorldwide (PDC Member Bill Kiehl's international consulting firm).   The book updates and expands upon a book originally produced by USIS Thailand with editions in 1982, 1983, 1987 and 1996. The book can only be obtained through the Thai Embassy, however, it is not for sale.
