Description

This book reveals the complicated ways in which British and American media have influenced each other over the past two centuries.
Through fourteen original essays by leading historians and media scholars, Anglo-American Media Interactions reveals the complicated ways in which British and American media have influenced each other over the past two centuries. In doing so, it adds an important transatlantic dimension to a media scholarship that normally remains within strictly national contexts, while demonstrating the crucial and varied ways in which media have helped build an Anglo-American ‘special relationship’.
