Alex Oliver and former Australian senator have written a chapter on Australia's public diplomacy in a new book from Palgrave, Understanding Public Diplomacy in East Asia, edited by leading experts on public diplomacy Jan Melissen and Yul Sohn. Set against the backdrop of tensions in East Asia, this book analyses how East Asia's 'new middle powers' and emerging powers employ public diplomacy as a key element of their foreign policy strategy and in so doing influence regional power dynamics. The volume brings together contributions from an international and influential group of scholars, who are leading debates on public diplomacy within East Asia.

Soft power debate has not analytically moved beyond the questions of whether soft power matters and of whether soft power can work independent of hard power since Nye’s initial formulation.

This neglect leads to the underspecification of the nature and content of a given state’s soft power policy. In this article, we fill in these gaps by recasting the conventional understanding of soft power conceptually and analytically. Conceptually, we make the case that soft power should be u..
