 Joseph S. Nye, Jr

Joseph S. Nye, Jr., was formerly Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs.

He is currently dean of Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

"Soft power is the ability to get what we want by attracting others rather than by threatening or paying them. It is based on our culture, our political ideals and our policies...After the war in Iraq, I spoke about soft power to a conference co-sponsored by the Army. One of the speakers was Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld. When someone in the audience asked Rumsfeld for his opinion on soft power, he replied, 'I don't know what it means.' That is part of our problem. Some of our leaders don't understand the importance of soft power in our post-Sept. 11 world."
