This book widens the debate beyond US media and policy making by considering the case of Western European and Eastern European media and policy processes. It tests the wider application of existing theoretical approaches and provides useful comparisons which allows the reader to draw conclusions on the media/policy relationship. Those interested in political communication, European politics and media studies will find this book an excellent comparative text.
This topical book studies media-foreign policy interaction in an age of proclaimed 'new military humanitarianism'. The media is now more effective in gathering and distributing information all over the world and media coverage of humanitarian wars now allows for information and images to reach a wide audience with great immediacy and realism. For policy making, the current media news cycle has meant high levels of exposure of fast breaking international stories that receive global attention and produce a powerful 'do something' effect.
