Abstract:

"In The Global President: International Media and the US Government, scholars Stephen J. Farnsworth, S. Robert Lichter, and Roland Schatz provide an expansive international examination of news coverage of US political communication and the roles that the US government and the presidency play in an increasingly communicative and interconnected political world. This comprehensive yet concise text will engage and inform students in many intersecting disciplines, as it includes analyses of not just the presidency but also US foreign policy and contemporary political media. The media that have developed in order to keep pace with the headwinds of political change are being asked more and more to adapt to and enhance the ways in which policymakers, voters and students make sense of the process of governing. The realities of an ever-changing political landscape are magnified nowhere more greatly than in the realm of foreign policy, and the stakes surrounding the need for effective communication skills are no higher than at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, because when the voices of the US government speak, the world is listening. This book provides students a perfect entry point into the complex and amorphous relationship between media and government, as well as where that relationship has been and where it looks to be heading in the future."--Back cover.
