The Al Jazeera effect : how the new global media are reshaping world politics by Philip M Seib( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and Korean and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The battle for hearts and minds in the Middle East is being fought not on the streets of Baghdad, but on the newscasts and talk shows of Al Jazeera. The future of China is being shaped not by Communist Party bureaucrats, but by bloggers working quietly in cyber cafes. The next attacks by al Qaeda will emerge not from Osama bin Laden's cave, but from cells around the world connected by the Internet. In these and many other instances, traditional ways of reshaping global politics have been superseded by the influence of new media - satellite television, the Internet, and other high-tech tools. What is involved is more than a refinement of established practices. We are seeing a comprehensive reconnecting of the global village and a reshaping of how the world works. Al Jazeera is a paradigm of new media's influence. Ten years ago, there was much talk about the CNN effect, ' the theory that news coverage - especially gripping visual storytelling - was influencing foreign policy throughout the world. Today, 'the Al Jazeera effect' takes that a significant step further. The concept encompasses the use of new media as tools in every aspect of global affairs, ranging from democratization to terrorism, and including the concept of 'virtual states.' 'The media' are no longer just the media. They have a larger popular base than ever before and, as a result, have unprecedented impact on international politics. The media can be tools of conflict and instruments of peace; they can make traditional borders irrelevant and unify peoples scattered across the globe. This phenomenon, the Al Jazeera effect, is reshaping the world."--Jacket
Broadcasts from the Blitz : how Edward R. Murrow helped lead America into war by Philip M Seib( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the words "This is London," Edward R. Murrow's groundbreaking radio broadcasts from 1939 to 1941 brought the blitz into America's living rooms. Countering the tide of U.S. isolationism, Murrow told his huge audience that the United States could not avoid a confrontation with Hitler and that the bombs it heard falling during his reports would eventually be targeted at American cities. But although often cited as the paragon of journalistic objectivity, Murrow had a clear agenda-to bring America into the war-and he slanted his broadcasts accordingly. And behind the scenes, he helped the Bri
Campaigns and conscience : the ethics of political journalism by Philip M Seib( Book )

15 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seib examines the ethical issues underlying the volatile relationship between journalists and politicians. It provides an inside look at how reporters and candidates do their jobs. From the screening process news organizations use to decide which candidates to cover, to the truth-testing of political ads, to the controversies surrounding election night projections, this work articulates crucial ethical questions and helps readers in their search for answers. As a political communications text, Campaigns and Conscience looks at the many facets of political journalism: what reporters need to know before covering a campaign; how to approach the character issue; how to keep up with the frantic pace of a campaign; why campaign ads should be covered as news; the allure and dangers of polls, projections, and endorsements; and, the responsibility of the press to cover one of the most powerful quasi-political institutions--the press itself
Who's in charge? : how the media shape news and politicians win votes by Philip M Seib( Book )

Headline diplomacy : how news coverage affects foreign policy by Philip M Seib( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seib explores the many ways in which news coverage shapes the design and implementation of foreign policy. By influencing the political attitudes of opinion-shaping elites and the public at large, the news media can profoundly affect the conduct of foreign policy. Seib's text analyzes important examples of press influence on foreign affairs: the news media's definition of success and failure, as in reporting the 1968 Tet Offensive in Vietnam; how public impatience, fueled by news reports, can pressure presidents, as happened during the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-81; how presidents can anticipate and control news media coverage, as was done by the Bush administration during the 1991 Gulf War; how press revelation or suppression of secret information affects policy, as in the cases of the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban missile crisis, and various intelligence operations; how coverage of humanitarian crises affects public opinion; the challenges of live TV coverage; and the changing influence of news in the post-Cold War world. By covering a wide range of issues and examples, this important text will stimulate thoughtful appraisal of the relationships between the news media and those who make policy
The global journalist : news and conscience in a world of conflict by Philip M Seib( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This provocative book argues that not only do U.S. news media have the duty to cover international events that affect the interests of the public and the government, but they also should 'shake awake the world's conscience' by bringing more attention to international conflict and suffering-in hopes of spurring humanitarian action or intervention to help those in need
New media and the new Middle East by Philip M Seib( Book )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In one of the most politically volatile and dynamic regions of the world, new media technologies are profoundly influencing the course of events. Satellite television and the Internet are affecting how the people and states of the Middle East function individually and in a global context. In New Media and the New Middle East, topics ranging from women's rights to terrorism and countries from Israel to Saudi Arabia are examined in terms of how new media are reshaping lives and politics. Leading international scholars examine the global and regional ramifications of the proliferation of communication technologies and the information that they disseminate
Al Jazeera English : global news in a changing world by Philip M Seib( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Al Jazeera English has yet to receive to receive the attention accorded to its Arabic-language elder sibling, it is in many ways the more interesting of the two. It seeks to redefine global news coverage by focusing on areas traditionally neglected by most news organizations, and its potential audience is many times larger than that of the Arabic channel. Its coverage of the 2011 Arab Spring brought the channel a large new audience. This is the first book to thoroughly examine this channel's coverage methods, its effects on its audience, and its place in the world of mediated geopolitics
Media and conflict in the twenty-first century( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent war with Iraq has had the greatest impact on journalism since the Vietnam War. Before the next war arrives, how the news media cover conflict -- and international affairs more generally -- should be scrutinized. The questions explored in this book include: * Were embedded journalists' reports from Iraq overused and was context sacrificed in favor of drama? * Is the relationship between news organizations and the Pentagon too cozy? * Has Al-Jazeera's impact been underestimated? * Is the Internet superseding other media? * Has public diplomacy become mired in clumsy propaganda? * Do policy makers understand how news coverage affects global politics? Beyond the Front Lines examines news coverage of modern war, with particular emphasis on the performance of journalists during the 2003 U.S.-Iraq war. It also analyzes the relationship between news coverage and American foreign policy, as well as how globalization is reshaping the news business. Philip Seib also describes the changing technologies and ethics of modern warfare, suggests ways journalists might carry out their job better, and offers a new perspective on the role of the news media in a high-tech, globalized, and dangerous world. --Publisher
Global terrorism and new media : the post-Al Qaeda generation by Philip M Seib( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global Terrorism and New Media carefully examines the content of terrorist websites and extremist television programming to provide a comprehensive look at how terrorist groups use new media today. Based partly on a content analysis of discussion boards and forums, the authors share their findings on how terrorism 1.0 is migrating to 2.0 where the interactive nature of new media is used to build virtual organization and community. Although the creative use of social networking tools such as Facebook may advance the reach of terrorist groups, the impact of their use of new media remains uncertain. The book pays particular attention to terrorist media efforts directed at women and children, which are evidence of the long-term strategy that some terrorist organizations have adopted, and the relationship between terrorists' media presence and actual terrorist activity. This volume also looks at the future of terrorism online and analyzes lessons learned from counterterrorism strategies. -- Back cover

Real-time diplomacy : politics and power in the social media era by Philip M Seib( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2011 uprisings in the Middle East proved that democracy retains its appeal, even to people who have long lived without it. They also illustrated how, in a high-speed, media-centric world, conventional diplomacy has become an anachronism. Not only do events move quickly, but so too does public reaction to those events. The cushion of time that enabled policymakers to judiciously gather information and weigh alternatives is gone. Real-Time Diplomacy analyzes the essential, but often unhappy, marriage between diplomacy and new media, evaluating media's reach and influence, and determining how policy makers might take advantage of media's real-time capabilities rather than being driven by them

The player : Christy Mathewson, baseball, and the American century by Philip M Seib( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christy Mathewson was baseball's first superstar - a beloved turn-of-the-century pitcher who was among the initial group of five players elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Mathewson was a hero to fans, a role model for children, and a lasting symbol of sportsmanship. He transformed and transcended the game, with achievements on the diamond that are unmatched to this day, and with accomplishments off the field that made him one of the best-known Americans of his time."

The future of diplomacy by Philip M Seib( Book )

16 editions published in 2016 in English and Polish and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Never before has diplomacy evolved at such a rapid pace. It is being transformed into a global participatory process by new media tools and newly empowered publics. Public diplomacy has taken center-stage as diplomats strive to reach and influence audiences that are better informed and more assertive than any in the past. In this crisp and insightful analysis, Philip Seib, one of the world s top experts on media and foreign policy, explores the future of diplomacy in our hyper-connected world. He shows how the focus of diplomatic practice has shifted away from the closed-door, top-level negotiations of the past. Today s diplomats are obliged to respond instantly to the latest crisis fueled by a YouTube video or Facebook post. This has given rise to a more open and reactive approach to global problem-solving with consequences that are difficult to predict. Drawing on examples from the Iran nuclear negotiations to the humanitarian crisis in Syria, Seib argues persuasively for this new versatile and flexible public-facing diplomacy; one that makes strategic use of both new media and traditional diplomatic processes to manage the increasingly complex relations between states and new non-state political actors in the 21st Century
Religion and public diplomacy( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mixing religion and public diplomacy can produce volatile results, but in a world in which the dissemination and influence of religious beliefs are enhanced by new communications technologies, religion is a factor in many foreign policy issues and must be addressed. Faith is such a powerful part of so many people's lives that it should be incorporated in public diplomacy efforts if they are to have meaningful resonance among the publics they are trying to reach. This book addresses key issues of faith in an increasingly connected and religious world and provides a better understanding of the role religion plays in public diplomacy
