Foreign correspondents are playing an increasingly important role in shaping how the world views the United States. More than just reporting the new, visiting journalists provide context to events that often are unfamiliar or confusing to their readers back home. In this age of globalization, foreign perceptions of America matter more than ever. Up until now, there has been little thoughtful examination of the foreign press in America. Through Their Eyes fills this void in the unmistakable voice of Stephen Hess, who has been reporting on reporting for over a quarter of a century. In this engaging look at foreign correspondents in the United States, Hess reveals the mindset of journalists from a wide range of countries. Correspondents interviewed or profiled come from media as diverse as Corriere Della Sera (Italy), Fuji Television (Japan), the Jerusalem Post, MBC-TV in Korea, the Kuwait News Agency, and the Guardian (UK). Hess examines how reporting from abroad has changed over the past twenty years and addresses the daunting challenges--from home-office politics to national stereotypes--facing these members of the media. He asks three essential journalistic questions: Who are the correspondents? How do they work? What do they report? The answers, informed by scores of interviews and original survey research, help explain why the world sees the United States as it does. Through Their Eyes is the sixth volume in the Newswork Series, an award-winning examination of the unique web of relationships that exist between the government and the media. It is essential reading for Americans trying to grasp how others perceive them, since those perceptions to matter—like it or not.
