Description
Modern international history and the "information age" of today are brought together in News Revolution, an unparalleled study of the news media from Mark Alleyne. Examining the tremendous impact that the news media have had on international relations, Alleyne reveals the dilemmas the media have both created and faced on the global stage: the danger of becoming a source of propaganda; the conflict over the issue of censorship; the inability to guarantee the safety of journalists; and the scrutiny received in the debate over the unequal flow of news. Alleyne debates and challenges the role of the media in this comprehensive scrutiny of their powers, battles, and failures. He also explains the lack of international cooperation over the issue of freedom of information offering an in-depth analysis of the relations among news, information, and political bodies' value systems - and studies the benefits and shortcomings of the "information age" for the clues that they provide about what to expect in the future.
