This volume makes a major contribution to the study of journalism and international relations from an American perspective.' James D. Startt, American Journalism '... provides a scholarly history that not only chronicles how US journalists have covered foreign events, but also explores how this coverage has affected the foreign policy of the US and broader international affairs ... an important study for audiences interested in media, international relations, and journalism ... Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate, research, and professional collections.' S. B. DeMasi, Choice
