Editorial Reviews


Kevin Williams has authored an account of "foreign" correspondence and international journalism that is the most comprehensively-sourced, inclusive, contextualized, timely and critical in its field. At last, we have an account that acknowledges that the largest employers of "foreign" correspondents for nearly two hundred years have been and continue to be the news agencies; that the occupation is rooted in a history of imperialism, post-colonialism and commercialization, whose vestiges today are all too apparent; that the impacts of so-called "new media" on the amount, range and quality of international news, while significant, are less dramatic and less positive than commonly supposed
Oliver Boyd-Barrett, PhD
Professor of Journalism, Bowling Green State University, Ohio

With the clarity of a searchlight, the sharpness of a razorblade and an unusual ability to focus on the essential, Professor Williams' book on international journalism provides a foundation from which further debate on global journalism can take place. In outlining the many paradoxes between the global wave in journalism and the demise of the autonomous foreign correspondent, the book provides a setting for anyone interested in the globalization paradoxes
Hans-Henrik Holm
Jean Monnet Professor, Danish School of Media and Journalism

So how will this change the international journalism of the future? Williams possesses no crystal ball but he does have a sound analytical brain and plenty of solid research. His opening chapters give a clear and detailed explanation of the way international journalism works. This covers everything the student, novice or experienced, needs to understand how the news is brought from foreign lands. There are also detailed discussions about the meaning and purpose of foreign news as well as explanations of why foreign news is becoming less important in domestic media

Format: Paperback
This guy used to teach our communications classes. Initially, his only book was on a subject he claimed hadn't been written about, and that the money went back to the department. Since, a few dozen books have been written on the subject, and he went on to write several books that are all written about by many others, and making them required readings for his classes. He also teaches as a different university now, so, that should say something. He was the department chair and is now an associate professor. His class teaching was always very out of date at best and completely inaccurate at worst. Look at the cover; this is a book about media and it looks like it was released 15 years ago. It's a book made to be forced on students to generate sales and little else.
