From the PublisherWhile recognizing that media can have a powerful effect on process, Warren Strobel carefully and effectively debunks the 'media makes policy' myth in this book
A revealing read. Strobel, himself a practitioner of daily 'newsbreak' journalism in the print medium, peels away the veneer of magic around today's global newscasting and offers a glimpse of how policymaking and instant journalism mix.
Insiders in the policy and media establishments will see themselves in Late-Breaking Foreign Policy. Consumers of news and policy will never watch 'live' television journalism the same way again.
A useful exploration of the issues raised when CNN intersects with international diplomacy. Strobel's case studies from the post-Cold War crises in Somalia and Haiti are especially instructive. In short, an important contribution to the field.
A well-written piece of research that will completely engage readers interested in the media's place in today's culture.
The very fluidity and uncertainty of our times make Warren Strobel's thoughtful, perceptive study an important book for policymakers, reporters, and students of foreign policy
