The Portrayal of Czechoslovakia in the American Print Media, 1938-1989

Edited by Gregory C. Ference

East European Monographs

This book tells the history of a tiny country caught up in four major world crises from 1938 to 1989 and how the American print media presented these events to its readers. The contributors discuss how American journalists and political cartoons portrayed, and in some cases stereotyped, Czechoslovakia during this period. They also study the relationship between the foreign policy of the United States and its press coverage.

The book is for scholars and students of European and American histories, international relations, and journalism, and those interested in the role of the print media on foreign policy issues.
A novel and valuable contribution to scholarship. Janis Kent Chakars, American Journalism
