Stephen Farnsworth Publishes New Book

Stephen Farnsworth, professor of political science and director of the University’s Center for Leadership and Media Studies, is coauthor of new book, “The Global President: International Media and the U.S. Government,” published this month by Rowman & Littlefield, a scholarly publisher in the social sciences.

From the publisher:  “This book provides an expansive international examination of news coverage of US political communication, and the roles the US government and the Presidency play in an increasingly communicative and interconnected political world. This comprehensive yet concise text includes analyses of not just the Presidency, but US foreign policy and contemporary political media itself. The realities of an ever-changing political landscape are magnified nowhere more greatly than in the realm of foreign policy, and the stakes surrounding the need for quality communication skills are no higher than at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue because – when the voices of the US government speak – the world is listening.”
