Under Pressure!

Media and Politics

This book focuses on the influence that the media has on German politics and the chequered history of relations between journalists and politicians. It spans the period beginning under allied occupation after 1945 and extending to the current challenges and perspectives. Particular attention is given to the "Spiegel" affair, the controversies involving the Springer press in the 1960s and 1970s, the media hype surrounding politicians and reporting of the NSA scandal. Interviews with high-profile contemporary witnesses and brief commentaries supplement the richly illustrated essays.
