Overview

"This book is an important contribution to our understanding of how foreign policy agendas are constructed in the media. Jonathan Mermin proceeds systematically, presenting illuminating cases that utilize both content analysis and contextual interpretation. His analysis offers useful ideas about how we can evaluate the quality of public deliberation underlying foreign policy decisions."—Lance Bennett, University of Washington

"Debating War and Peace is an excellent and long-needed addition on the topic of media and foreign policy. Comparing a range of American foreign policy initiatives, the book combines outstanding scholarship and a clear articulation of important arguments. It should be read not only by scholars but also by journalists, policymakers, and general readers interested in how the media covers foreign policy."—Ann N. Crigler, University of Southern California
