Exploring the relationship between the growth of global media and Cold War tensions and resolutions
James Schwoch is an associate professor of communication studies at Northwestern University and the coeditor, with Mimi White, of Questions of Method in Cultural Studies.
"A wholly original, well-researched, and superbly written account of the development of global television set within the intertwined contexts of American foreign policy, psychological warfare, and information diplomacy. Stimulating and enjoyable." John T. Caldwell, author of Production Culture: Industrial Reflexivity and Critical Practice in Film and Television "The sheer joy that Schwoch takes in hauling curiosities out of the archives is contagious. The result provides serious food for thought in considering current U.S. policy about international media and goodwill building." John Durham Peters, author of Courting the Abyss: Free Speech and the Liberal Tradition
