Exporting the First Amendment: the press-government crusade of 1945-1952

Front Cover
"In the aftermath of World War II, the United States State Department and various journalistic organizations joined forces in an attempt to attach statements guaranteeing American-style freedom of the press to certain peace treaties and to United Nations agreements. [Title] documents this controversial crusade. Drawing on State Department records, United Nations debates, personal papers, and journalistic accounts, the text describes how the press defined the issue of First Amendment international-policy aspirations. These aspirations provide grist for current free-press debates before UNESCO and are the focus of the arguments made in the controversy over the proposed New World Information Order." --Jacket.
