Nancy Snow, associate professor of public diplomacy in Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, is the author of “Persuader-in-Chief: Global Opinion and Public Diplomacy in the Age of Obama,” due out from Nimble Books on Tuesday, Jan. 20.
According to the publisher: “Nancy Snow welcomes America and the world to the age of Obama with this biting, funny, generous-minded look at the challenges President Obama will face as he communicates about America with the rest of the globe.”
“The 44th president is a master of message and image control,” says Snow. “His calm and disciplined approach to managing government will be a welcome change for this country after eight years of a roller coaster ride—from 9/11 to Axis of Evil, Shock and Awe to Mission Accomplished. Obama is no Messiah but he is messianic. We expect better things for a nation in need of an extreme makeover.”
Snow is an expert on American persuasion, influence and propaganda; presidential image and rhetoric; public diplomacy; U.S. foreign policy; and entertainment and media culture in American society.
Snow is the author of “The Arrogance of American Power: What U.S. Leaders Are Doing Wrong and Why It’s Our Duty to Dissent”; “Information War: American Propaganda, Free Speech and Opinion Control Since 9/11”; and “Propaganda, Inc.: Selling America’s Culture to the World.” She is also an editor of the “Routledge Handbook of Public Diplomacy” and “War, Media and Propaganda: A Global Perspective.”
