The annual Freedom of the Press, which tracks trends in media freedom worldwide, appears for the first time as an expanded book. Covering 192 countries, the survey provides numerical ratings of the level of press freedom in each country. The Freedom House survey team also assesses the legal environment for the media, political pressures that influence reporting, and economic factors that affect access to information. Essays include a 25-year retrospective of press freedom and a timely analysis of the upcoming World Summits on the Information Society (2003 and 2005). Academics in several disciplines, governments, the news media, and the World Bank employ Freedom of the Press as a standard reference.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Freedom House annual survey of the status of press freedom around the world is the most accurate and consistent analysis of that most fundamental human right, without which democracy, the rule of law, and free markets cannot exist. It is the most useful reference guide for international government officials, business executives, and press freedom advocates. -- James Ottaway, chairman, World Press Freedom Committee
When it comes to understanding the state of freedom in the world, the world turns to Freedom House. As in past years, Freedom of the Press 2003 represents the definitive, state-of-the-art assessment of press freedom and the legal, political, and economic forces that support or undermine it. This report will put the glare of public attention on governments that deny press freedom, and will thereby help to open to light the dark corners of the world where information is controlled and journalists work in mortal peril. -- Jeffrey D. Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and special advisor to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan
Interesting-and disturbing-reading. * Communication Booknotes Quarterly *
All over the world, governments are developing sophisticated methods to muzzle honest reporters and intimidate their editors. Through this invaluable survey, Freedom House shines the spotlight on the adversaries of press freedom, explains their techniques, and alerts the public to acts of repression. -- Mara Liasson, national political correspondent, National Public Radio
