Overview

"An incisive and insightful study of what the press does to government—not the old press, but the new press, and television. This is one of those unusual books scholars and public officials alike had better read if they want their work to make contemporary sense." —James David Barber, James B. Duke Professor of Political Science and Policy Studies, Duke University"Every public officials and every reporter should read this important book. It is a detailed look at the critical ways in which the press influences the shaping of vital public policy. People in the government will now understand that they cannot do their jobs without the press, and the reporters who cover them will now understand that they, too, are participants rather than observers in the world of public affairs." —Elliot L. Richardson"A meaty and reflective analysis of the much-misunderstood and much-abused relationship between government and the press that, for good or ill, will largely determine the effectiveness in policymaking of the American system throughout the foreseeable future." —James R. Schlesinger, former Secretary of Defense"There is no more important relationship in public policymaking than that between the press and government. This book is an important and interesting contribution to the literature." —Leslie H. Gelb, national security correspondent, New York Times
