Pressestimmen"Never in the history of the republic have we Americans been so cordially disliked around the world. Never have we needed an effective strategy for cultural diplomacy more. In The First Resort of Kings, Richard Arndt presents the neglected history of American cultural diplomacy, and his story is as accurate and engrossing as it is depressing. We desperately need to do better, and Arndt has some important advice about how and where we can improve. This is a valuable book for anyone who cares about improving America's place in the world." - Stanley N. Katz, professor of public and international affairs, Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University "A massive and disturbing discussion of the bureaucratic politics and the general schizophrenia that have informed America's attitude toward 'cultural diplomacy.' Richard Arndt gives us an insider's examination of the best, and the worst, official efforts to create a favorable image of the U.S. abroad." - Joseph LaPalombara, senior research scholar and Wolfers Professor Emeritus of Political Science and Management, Yale University"
