New Books Network recommends Prof Diana Lemberg’s latest publication on US and media

Prof Diana Lemberg, Associate Professor of Department of History, was invited by New Books Network to talk about her latest book Barriers Down: How American Power and Free-Flow Policies Shaped Global Media.


“The book is an innovative study that shows just how central information politics were to the US’ vision of the global order,” comments the host Dexter Fergie.


Published by the Columbia University Press, the book examines how American businessmen, statesmen, and social scientists sought to tear down barriers to transnational flows of information in the post-WWII era, and, in the process, maximise the spread of American content abroad.
