About the Author

Stephen M. Magu is assistant professor of political science at Hampton University.


Stephen Magu's Peace Corps and Citizen Diplomacy is a well-timed reminder of what `the better angels of our nature' bring to foreign affairs. Soft power, he shows, can produce tangible results. Since President Kennedy inaugurated the Peace Corps, more than 220,000 volunteers have served in 139 countries. Even today, some 7,000 are at work in 64 countries. Magu deploys rigorous tests and empirical evidence to prove that the program serves both American policy and humanitarian needs. This is a unique and powerful examination of the accomplishments of the Peace Corps, essential to any student of foreign policy or international development. -- Aaron Karp, Old Dominion University
A well-researched and documented conceptualization of citizen diplomacy as a foreign policy strategy, Peace Corps and Citizen Diplomacy: Soft Power Strategies in U.S. Foreign Policy hammers home the dyadic relationships between host countries welcoming citizen diplomats and those countries' foreign policy behaviors. The book demonstrates well beyond the concept of citizen diplomacy, its outcomes and its achievements while clarifying the understanding of the United States' greater engagement with the world. It establishes the history of this institution and relates the underlying personal motives that morphed from personal goals to those of foreign policy and international relations. This is an uncontested cornerstone elucidating a missing link of how international players act within the UN, moved by the soft power strategies of US foreign policy. In short, this book is a must read and an innovative exploration of the complex interrelationship between international politics and citizen diplomacy. -- Bill F. Ndi, Tuskegee University
