Editorial Reviews

Review

This thoughful study concentrates on the last two decades and issues of war and peace...Taylor demonstrates a good feel for the technology of news gathering and dissemination, the evolution of news organizations, and the political consequences of instantaneous global news..
Foreign Affairs

This is a very important subject for a wide range of professionals--academics, journalists, the military--as well as anyone who is at all interested in the media of world affairs. A ground breaking study.
–John W. Young, University of Leicester

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Maj. Paul Swiergosz on February 23, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is a must read for political science, foreign relations, military, and communications professionals and students. It provides a framework for discussion on topics of communications technology, international relations and military-media relations as they have evolved in the post-WWII era. While this description seems to cast a wide net for readers, the book does indeed deliver. While admittedly critical of the news media, the author suceeds in providing a realistic context to promote discussion on how international relations are affected by new communications technologies and the global media network.
Divided into four chapters with well-defined sub-heads, the author begins by briefly discussing the evolution of communications technologies and their impacts in the present day "information age." In his introduction, the author offers his own analysis of Alvin Tofler's Third Wave theory and its present and future impact, as well as an analysis of modern communications and how they constitute a "fourth dimension" of international relations.
Chapter one (International communications and international politics since 1945) examines the new political orders existing in the aftermath of World War II. Included are discussions about the rival Superpowers' use of new information technologies during the Cold War, as well as the political ramifications of an ever-expanding global communications network - to include the emergence of CNN as a powerful factor in international politics.
Chapter two (Brushfires and firefighters: international affairs and the news media) examines the effects of the news media on foreign policy, diplomacy and culture.
