Contributors consider how leading players like Reuters and Associated Press help to define the nature of both the Global and the Local as well as focusing on the network of relations between international and national agencies. The book also takes into account the attempts by some national news agencies to establish radically different news agendas. Demonstrating how the news agencies have contributed both to the process of globalization and, simultaneously, to the process of national construction, this book provides an important critical survey of the contemporary international news business.

`[The book] should be applauded for promoting the importance of news agency studies, not only in the context of the relatively recent preoccupation with globalization, but also in the face of long-term neglect across media studies in general.... an invaluable resource' - European Journal of Communication
