Media and Public Policy


Political scientists and media specialists accept the commonplace assumption that the mass media have a profound and direct impact on virtually every aspect of the political process, yet remarkably few systematic studies examining the relationship between media and policy exist. This volume brings together 16 prominent scholars who focus analytic attention on the underexamined connection between the media and public policymaking. Chapters cover topics in theoretical issues, media and domestic policy, and media and foreign policy.
