Press Freedom and Global Politics: by Douglas A. Van Belle



Van Belle provides the first systematic analysis of the effects that press freedom has on the conduct of international politics. The of press freedoms within a state and the free flow of information between the free presses of different nations creates a foreign policy decision making environment that systematically limits policy options.

Van Belle provides the first systematic analysis of the effects that press freedom has on the conduct of international politics. Press freedoms within a state and the free flow of information between the free presses of different nations create intriguing and empirically identifiable patterns in global politics. The of press freedoms within a state and the free flow of information between the free presses of different nations creates a foreign policy decision making environment that systematically limits policy options, generates domestic political imperatives, and provides specific benefits to a leader. This shapes some aspects of foreign policy in a consistent and empirically identifiable manner, most notably by limiting international conflicts. DOUGLAS A. VAN BELLE is a Professor of Political Science at East Stroudsburg University.

Douglas A. Van Belle delivers all of the core concepts and real-world political examples you expect from an introductory book, gives students a solid grounding in political institutions, ideologies, economics and more-all while referencing examples from 1984 to Game of Thrones to The Avengers  . That initial analysis was expanded to complete Press Freedom and Global Politics (Praeger), which provides the foundation for the extension conducted here.

Van Belle provides the first systematic analysis of the effects that press freedom has on the conduct of international politics. The institutionalization of press freedoms within a state and the free flow of information between the free presses of different nations creates a foreign policy decision making environment that systematically limits policy options, generates domestic political imperatives, and provides specific benefits to a leader. This shapes some aspects of foreign policy in a consistent and empirically identifiable manner, most notably by limiting international conflicts.

When social-psychological propositions regarding dehumanization and the acceptance of killing in war are introduced to Van Belle's model, shared press freedom is shown to provide a mechanism that prevents lethal conflicts. The effects of press freedom on international conflict, particularly on hypotheses related to escalating conflicts beyond the threshold of casualties, are quite robust. However, Van Belle indicates there is no evidence of a complimentary effect on cooperation. The combination of findings from the empirical analyses suggest that the key to the effects of press freedom center on the creation of images, such as the dehumanized image of an enemy. A thoughtful analysis that scholars and researchers of foreign policy and international relations as well as journalism and mass communication will find particularly useful.

Well, in one stroke of his pen, Van belle has lowered the bar for political writing everywhere. Vanbelle sent the foreign policy establishment in a stir earlier this year w/ his publication of press yaddah yaddah... The impact of this book could be felt in toilet stalls around the globe as veterans of the beltway summarily wiped themselves and then proceeded to flush. From the compelling thesis which reconfirms the groundbreaking work of little known tautology expert Raymond Nixon circa 1960, to the novel's anticlimactic finish, one can't help but get goosebumps in awe of van belle's intellectual prowess. Those seven years of undergraduate work really paid off! I don't know where van belle gets his drugs from but I'd really like to get the name of his dealer.

I found this book to be about as informative as a cereal box label. No, scratch that--a cereal box label has much more in-depth analysis. Are there any original, thought-provoking ideas in this work? The answer: NO! That is, of course, assuming that you already knew that countries with freedom of the press tend to have (dramatic pause) a free press..? Complementing this mind-wrenching thesis are mounds of statistical data which all point to one major conclusion: Van Belle has no idea what he is talking about. Given the choice agaian, I would save my money for more scholarly works like "Babar, the elephant" or Pokemon adventure stories.

This is a spectacular piece of work, the first realistic treatment of the problem in many years. Van Belle is the only political scientist in my experience who actually treats his discipline like a science instead of a liberal art that suffers from physics-envy. Imagine this -- a wealth of robust, original data, careful hyopthesis-tesing, and a breadth of treatment that could only come from a political scientist who is also trained/experienced in international business and physics.
The first two reviews (written in the same style, so perhaps the same bozo?) could not have been written by anyone who even read the title of Van Belle's book. The first two are hardly meaningful reviews.
BRAVO to Van Belle.
