520    This is William G. Harley's personal account of the 
       process that produced the MacBride Commission report 
       UNESCO's International Commission for Study of 
       Communication Problems. Harley was present at all 
       Commission meetings; he had the complete collection of 
       reports he had sent back to the U.S. State Department. 
       Furthermore, he had a file of relevant personal notes, 
       memos, and letters, a comprehensive collection unique in 
       all the world. The author's account not only tells how 
       international agencies function, for better or worse, but 
       it also sketches the personalities involved in negotiating
       international communication problems. Harley's reports of 
       the meetings are fascinating exercises in group dynamics 
       which capture the substance and spirit of the debates. The
       sixteen experts appointed in 1977 by UNESCO Director-
       General, Amadou Mahtar M'Bow, were responsible for 
       preparing a report that would remedy issues such as Third 
       World hopes for a new world information order and the flow
       of international information. It was a conscientious 
       effort to reach a consensus in the study of these 
       relations between and within nations and Harley's Creative
       Compromise affords the reader insights into the complexity
       of modern communications and their interrelationships with
       the economic, cultural, and social aspects of our 
       interdependent world.
