Books and Bookmen
Article publication date: 1 February 1939
The world grows steadily smaller, and affairs are now given as much prominence five thousand miles away from the scene of high incident as they are in places within easy range. The fact has occurred to me with particular force lately when reflecting on the change that has taken place in the political contents of American newspapers. Even less than a score of years ago one might buy papers in Detroit or Chicago and hardly realise from them that Europe existed. The change has been quite sudden and remarkable. Now the foreign news services of the great American papers are regarded as of considerable importance by the managements.
