British and American experts in political communication discourse on a variety of topics involving governments, the mass media and the public: journalists and public institutions, the uses of television, secrecy, manipulation of information, public ignorance, all the usual topics. Questions of foreign policy are not the main fare, but all the essays are relevant to the handling of international news. The American contributors are especially pointed in their criticism of both official Washington and the U.S. media for deceiving or shortchanging the public.
