Diplomas and diplomacy: the history of the marshall scholarship
(palgrave macmillan, 2016)
The first published work to chart the history of the Marshall Scholarship, this book details the origins of the Scholarship in the British Foreign Office and subsequently traces the award's evolution through the careers and narratives of a range of Scholars. It further explores the complex and dynamic interaction between education and diplomacy through the broader lens of Anglo-American relations by way of extensive primary-source document research, interviews, and statistical analysis.
"Meticulously researched and engagingly written, Diplomas and Diplomacy recounts the founding and history of the prestigious Marshall Scholarship. Ostensibly a 'thank you' to America for its Marshall aid, the Scholarship was actually a political gesture to cement the Anglo-American relationship. It has succeeded on both counts; rewarding Britain as much as the twelve (now, thirty to forty) lucky Americans each year."
