Summary expansion
  • This book establishes in scholarly literature the early history of the content of foreign news and editorials in American newspapers while exploring "alternative" constructions of foreign cultures in the correspondence for an African-American newspaper and by women writers. Unique in both subject matter and approach, this work gathers together and puts into perspective an array of information and discussion about how America viewed other nations in the early days of foreign correspondence
  • Addresses the question of how the first United States foreign correspondents came to shape an American common sense about the rest of the world
