"Fainberg examines how American and Soviet journalists covered the Cold War and interacted with one another during a tense period of relative peace. Foreign correspondents on both sides were keen observers who aspired to understand their host country and interpret it for their home country. They were, however, influenced by their own cultural background, and their representations of the rival superpower were refracted through those cultural values"-- Provided by publisher
