Summary "In 1995, United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali said, "CNN is the sixteenth member of the [fifteen member] Security Council." Scholars as well as diplomats have recognized the existence of a link between communications and diplomacy, but until now the implications of this relationship have been left unexplored." "This work studies how communications have historically determined the practice of diplomacy, and how, with the development of global television, acts of communication can determine diplomatic outcomes under certain conditions. The ways in which today's broadcasting will shape foreign policy and world political processes in the future are scrutinized in depth."--BOOK JACKET
