Press Freedom and Global Politics

By Douglas A. Van Belle | Go to book overview

extends to basic motivations. The democratic peace is one of the most prominent areas of research that this perspective can address, but it is just one of several perspectives and research questions where this study can make contributions.

Finally, as mentioned earlier, it seemed important to provide a few points of reference for how the basic assumptions define how this study fits in the broader literature on foreign policy decision making. This will continue when possible. The argument in the next chapter focuses on how press freedom shapes the translation of leadership foreign policy choices into costs and benefits for the leader.


NOTES
1.
For a thorough review of the full scope and history of foreign policy analysis see Gerner ( 1995) or Hudson ( 1995).
2.
My reading of Morgenthau ( 1985) leads me to believe that if one focuses on the power that stems from the leadership position this is not too great a departure from the arguments he made. Others may disagree.
3.
Obviously, there is a whole range of other aspects that are relevant. See Rosati ( 1995) for a thorough review of the cognitive approach to foreign policy analysis. Also, see the conclusion of this book for a brief discussion of how the results found here might be integrated into a future study for these perspectives.
4.
There are obviously several more recent examples I could cite, the Handel ( 1977) article, however, fits perfectly in this context of how political and bureaucratic structures can frustrate a leader trying to make an optimal decision.
5.
I have to thank the student who just used this as a lame excuse for a late term paper for inspiring this example.
6.
This is regardless of the form that this support takes. It could be the support of the mass public as in a democracy or it could be the support of a small elite, or a military or a policing structure, or a single party, and so forth.
