About the Book

The 24-hour news cycle and vastly expanded media space in India, with multiple regional and national newspapers, and a plethora of television channels and news websites has increased the impact of the media in everyday life. The media helps shape public opinion, and since most governments and the political leadership seek public approval, it creates the impression of a highly influential media. 

Anyone watching prime time television debates in India would be led to believe that the media has a considerable influence on government policies, including its foreign policy.

This book explores the links between the media, diplomacy and foreign policy. It examines the interface between the media and the foreign policy establishment in India and its influence, if any, on foreign policy and its implementation.
