Thoroughly researched and beautifully written, Emily T. Metzgar’s study of the JET program presents an impressive analysis of public diplomacy’s diverse benefits. Exchange programs tend to be undervalued, but Metzgar sets the record straight. This is essential reading for those interested in the ways that educational exchanges can advance diplomatic interests. (Philip Seib, University of Southern California)
This study is an excellent and timely contribution to the literature on soft power and the US–Japan bilateral relationship. Emily T. Metzgar writes with clarity and knowledge gained from personal experience as an American teacher in Japan and from careful, long-term study of how the world’s largest teaching exchange program fosters public diplomacy. On the thirtieth anniversary of the JET Program, this book offers a fitting tribute to the potential of cultural exchange to open hearts and minds. (David McConnell, College of Wooster)
