Paul Cellucci told CA: "I wrote Unquiet Diplomacy to expand on my belief that public diplomacy is critical for the success of U.S. foreign policy in the post-September 11th world. The old style of diplomacy, conducted quietly and completely behind closed doors, is no longer effective. As the world's only remaining superpower, the United States has become by default the source of endless resentment around the world. My country is condemned when it acts and denounced when it does not. Yet America carries the lonely burden of leadership in this dangerous new world order. It is, therefore, critically important that our diplomats speak directly to the people of the country in which they serve, straightforwardly explaining the policy positions and the intentions of the U.S. government. The United States remains a powerful force for good in the world. As the U.S. ambassador to Canada, I conveyed this message, over and over, respectfully, forthrightly, and directly to the Canadian public. It was a new and controversial style of diplomacy, and it made my tenure in Canada a high-profile, remarkable experience."
