Book Description

Sept. 29 2005 0742540286 978-0742540286
Freedom House's annual press freedom survey, now covering 194 countries and territories, has tracked trends in media freedom worldwide since 1980. Featuring a new overview of the state of press freedom from senior researcher and editor Karin Deutsch Karlekar, Freedom of the Press 2005 provides comparative rankings and examines the legal environment for the media, political pressures that influence reporting, and economic factors that affect access to information. This survey is the most authoritative assessment of media freedom around the world. Its findings are widely utilized by policymakers, scholars, press freedom advocates, journalists, and international institutions.

Product Description


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)

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 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, Columbia University, and special advisor to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan)

A very useful compendiummmmm (Communication Booknotes Quarterly)

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, chair, World Press Freedom Committee)

A very useful compendium (Communication Booknotes Quarterly)
