Part of the Studies in Diplomacy book series (STD)


This study has been driven by an interest in how governments which are obliged to enter into informal diplomatic relations with other governments are required to engage in propaganda. At its core is the recognition that while diplomacy and propaganda may still be separate creatures, their interaction is now greater than ever before. First, it is pertinent to offer a number of general observations. This framework will then permit a more meaningful evaluation of the Republic of China’s effort and impact to be made.
