This volume, the second in the series of Herbert Wilson Griffin Seminars in International Affairs, provides a broad look, supported by a wealth of detail, at the extent to which the communications revolution is affecting our lives and relations among sovereign states. The world in the information age is changing rapidly, posing new challenges with respect both to the issues we confront and the ways in which we must deal with them. One constant theme that runs throughout the discussion is the need to adapt our thinking and behavior to the demands and opportunities of this changing environment. This is the challenge for American policies and for American diplomacy in the information age. Co-published with the Dacor Bacon House Foundation.
