Global leadership through soft power

Soft power refers to the ability of a country to influence the behavior of other countries or actors in the international system through non-coercive means. It is the ability to attract and persuade others to support a country’s policies and objectives through the use of culture, ideology, values, and institutions, rather than through military or economic coercion.

Runde’s new book The American Imperative: Reclaiming Global Leadership Through Soft Power addresses what America’s global strategy should look like in an age of renewed great power competition.
