Mass communication and the mass media are comparatively recent phenomena, but are the conditions in which politicians, statesmen and soldiers have been increasingly forced to operate. In "Global Communications, International Affairs and the Media Since 1945," Philip M. Taylor traces the increased involvement of the media in issues of peace and especially war from the nineteenth century to the present day. He analyzes the nature, role and impact of communications within the international arena and how communications interacts with foreign policy in practice rather than in theory. Using studies which include the Gulf War and Vietnam, Taylor details the contemporary problems of reporting while at the same time providing a comprehensive historical context.
