Protocol: The Power of Diplomacy and How to Make It Work For You
The new semester might be getting started, but the weather still feels like summer here in Philadelphia, and we hope you find time to enjoy a few more books on your summer reading list before the fall truly sets in. Our latest guest on our Summer Reading List podcast is Ambassador Capricia Marshall, who served as Chief of Protocol of the United States from 2009 to 2013, overseeing the details of democracy during countless state visits and global summits. Her new book is titled Protocol: The Power of Diplomacy and How to Make It Work For You. In our conversation, Marshall explains what protocol is, and why people often best understand its importance only when it goes wrong; whether shifts in the international order are affecting protocol practices; and how COVID-19 has changed her rules for good protocol. The Summer Reading List is a special edition of our podcast, The Global Cable. Throughout the summer, we're releasing new conversations with authors, discussing their latest books and the inspiration behind them. Music & Produced by Tre Hester.
