By Hermann Kurthen; Werner Bergmann et al. | Go to book overview

again in U.S. news and foreign affairs commentary when there was a resurgence of violence against refugees and foreigners. Although the events in the fall of 1992 were short-lived, the historical memory remains.


NOTES

This chapter is based on a Gallup survey conducted by telephone. The survey and content analysis were supported by a grant from the German Federal Press and Information Agency to the author at the Center for Political Studies, Institute of Social Research, University of Michigan. An earlier version of this chapter was presented at the International Studies Association annual meeting in Chicago, at a panel on "International News and Foreign Policymaking" of the Foreign Policy Analysis Section, February 23-25, 1995. Research assistance and computer support were provided by the S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and the Global Affairs Institute at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University. The research assistance of James McQuivey, a doctoral student in public communications at Syracuse University, is gratefully acknowledged. Also, the research assistance of Jaqui Chmielewski on the 1990 study is much appreciated.

1.
Findings from an earlier study are reported in Semetko, Brzinski, Weaver, and Willnat ( 1992) which was awarded the Robert Worcester Prize and named the article of the year in the International Journal of Public Opinion Research.
2.
The 1990, 1991, and 1993 U.S. surveys were conducted in collaboration with IPOS in Mannheim, which fielded comparable surveys of publics in the old and new Bundesländer in the same periods. IPOS also produced the table volumes on the U.S. surveys. These include American Attitudes about Germany in an Age of Transition," Study Number 670, March 1990; American Attitudes toward German in a Changing Europe," Study Number 777, October 1991; "American Attitudes toward Germany in a Changing Europe" Study Number 850, March/ April 1993.
3.
In regression analysis, the measures of exposure to news and attention to foreign affairs news in 1993 did not emerge as significant predictors of sympathy with Germany (using the -5 to +5 scale as the dependent variable).
