Philip Seib makes a compelling case for the journalistic responsibility to determine foreign news and against corporate profit incentives that deprive the American public and decision makers of contextual reporting about crucial developments and events abroad. Our lack of understanding of the Muslim world before 9/11 is but one example. This book is an ideal choice not only for students of communication and journalism but also for American government courses that explore the role of the media in domestic and foreign policymaking. -- Brigitte Nacos, Columbia Univeristy
Provocatively argues that U.S. media has the duty to 'shake awake the world's conscience' by covering more international stories and highlighting global suffering and conflict., Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Phillip Seib's <The Global Journalist> is a clear, concise argument for global journalism as a moral enterprise. . . . A timely work made more so by the events of Sept. 11, should enlighten readers concerned about world affairs....., The Dallas Morning News
The book is a must-read for journalists, journalism scholars, policy-makers and anyone interested in the issues of world affairs. Philip Seib knows how to merge the voices of journalists, policy-makers and scholars to give a full report on the current situation and problems in global journalism., European Journal Of Communication
Philip Seib's The Global Journalist makes a strong case for the need for more international coverage by the U.S. media. In the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks, we have seen the sad results of the media ignoring important global issues. The American public needs much more, not less, news about the rest of the world. Seib does an excellent job of explaining the global trends in the '90s that led many U.S. media companies to make the shortsighted decision to downplay international news. The Global Journalist presents compelling examples of how major international stories were uncovered or under-covered by the media. The result of this lack of coverage is an uninformed U.S. public that doesn't have the information it needs to respond to a fast-changing world. -- John Schidlovsky, director, Pew International Journalism Program
A highly relevant, readable book. The book can appeal as much to a policy decision maker, a journalist, or an academician, as to a lay person., International Communication Bulletin
