· The essays in this book aim to analyse how the media's patterns of behaviour changed over time. The authors explore how journalists influenced the rules of politics in Germany and Britain. They investigate which changes and continuities are evident from the late nineteenth century to the present day. As the media is not confined to the national stage, journalists often act internationally and transnationally. They interact with media people from other countries. They are important transmitters who create meanings and take an active part in politics: as editors, reporters, foreign and war correspondents, columnists or proprietors. This volume thus focuses on media history as entangled or shared history.

Bernhard Fulda, H-Soz-u-Kult, 24.07.2009
Yet rather than just adding to the growing literature on the politicisation of the media and the medialisation of politics this book promises to bring something new to the table: an analysis of the role of journalists as international or transnational actors. This is filling a gaping hole in the existing literature: international history and transnational studies have yet to discover the mass media; cultural history and the history of political communications have mainly concentrated on processes within one country and largely ignored the transnational dimension of political discourses and their formation. … A shared language undoubtedly helped to facilitate this transfer, but - as demonstrated especially by the individual contributions of Bösch und Geppert in the volume under review - were not necessarily a prerequisite for transfer. So the editors are to be congratulated for their efforts, praised for their willingness to make their findings accessible to non-German speakers, and encouraged to approach funding bodies for a follow-up conference that engages with the European and transatlantic dimension of this subject matter.

Die beiden Herausgeber sind ausgewiesene Experten für das Wechselspiel von Politik und Medien insbesondere am Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts. Beide lösen denn auch in ihren Beiträgen zu Skandalberichterstattung (Bösch) und Auslandskorrespondenten (Geppert) den von ihnen selbst in der Einleitung vorgegebenen Anspruch der vergleichenden Forschung ein. … Die Beiträge bereichern die internationale Journalismusforschung mit ihrem akribischen Quellenstudium und ihrer prägnanten Darstellung um fundiertes historisches Wissen über den britischen Journalismus.

... Bösch and Geppert draw attention to a very important stage on which one of the many plots of the Anglo-German play was performed. Its boards were trodden by a fascinating and motley troop of journalistic actors whose influence on the political process and culture of their time is beyond doubt. The present volume provides an interesting and worthwhile sampler of several of the many manifestations of the journalists’ role, but avoids some notoriously tricky issues. The impact of press reporting on its readers (who were also voters, parliamentarians, soldiers, diplomats), for instance, is hard to gauge, even if the perceived power of the press was based on a general belief that such an impact existed and could be directed. It would also have been illuminating to link the changing role of the journalists more consistently to the developments undergone by the 'political mass market' and the 'modern media system' (16) in Britain and Germany over the course of the century addressed by this volume. These quibbles notwithstanding, this volume is a useful addition to the growing literature both on Anglo-German political-cultural relations and the role of the press in German political culture.
