Cables, crises, and the press : the geopolitics of the new international information system in the Americas, 1866-1903 by John A Britton( )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decades the Internet has played what may seem to be a unique role in international crises. This book reveals an interesting parallel in the late nineteenth century, when a new communications system based on advances in submarine cable technology and newspaper printing brought information to an excitable mass audience. A network of insulated copper wires connecting North America, the Caribbean, South America, and Europe delivered telegraphed news to front pages with unprecedented speed. Britton surveys the technological innovations and business operations of newspapers in the United States, the building of the international cable network, and the initial enthusiasm for these electronic means of communication to resolve international conflicts. Focusing on United States rivalries with European nations in Latin America, he examines the Spanish American War, in which war correspondents like Richard Harding Davis fed accounts of Spanish atrocities and Cuban heroism into the American press, creating pressure on diplomats and government leaders in the United States and Spain. The new information system also played important roles in the U.S.-British confrontation in the Venezuelan boundary dispute, the building of the Panama Canal, and the establishment of the U.S. empire in the Caribbean and the Pacific
Revolution and ideology : images of the Mexican Revolution in the United States by John A Britton( )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and held by 987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mexico and the United States share a border of more than 2,000 miles, and their histories and interests have often intertwined. The Mexican Revolution, which began in 1910 and continued in one form or another for the next forty years, was keenly observed by U.S. citizens, especially those who were directly involved in Mexico through property ownership, investment, missionary work, tourism, journalism, and education. Historian John A. Britton examines contemporary accounts written by Americans commenting on fifty years of social upheaval south of the border. The Mexican revolution differed from many others in this century in that Marxist-Leninist theory was only one of many radical and reformist influences. With the recent collapse of communist regimes, historians and political scientists are looking at Mexico today with renewed interest in its mostly nonideological revolution. Britton draws on accounts of cultural, business, and political leaders as well as journalists and academics. Radical journalist John Reed, novelists Katherine Anne Porter and D.H. Lawrence, social critics Stuart Chase and Waldo Frank, and banker-diplomat Dwight Morrow are among the best known commentators. Radical writers John Kenneth Turner and Carleton Beals, academics Herbert I. Priestley and Frank Tannenbaum, and Communists Bertram Wolfe and Joseph Freeman bring their unique points of view to bear on Mexican political events
