This timely book presents a multifaceted look at war, media, and propaganda from international perspectives. Focusing on the media's role in global conflicts, prominent authors, journalists, scholars, and researchers provide an insightful overview of the impact of globalization on media practices. They examine the processes behind media coverage of war, sophisticated propaganda techniques, the dynamics of public opinion, and the effects on human affairs and communication. As the book moves through theoretical discussions to regional and national views, it explores cultural-political implications for the United States and other countries around the world, concluding with recommendations and solutions to key problems of media globalization.

Taken together, the 24 essays in this collection demonstrate once again the truth of the clich that truth is the first casualty of war. Several contributors discuss, and are disturbed by, the unprecedented extent of deliberate, detailed, and systematic lying (all of which has been documented) by the Bush administration regarding the instigation and conduct of the war on Iraq. Highly recommended.
CHOICE

There has been a reflex throughout the history of modern news: When the country goes to war, so do the major news organizations. They consider it 'patriotic.' But it is dubious patriotism that abandons citizens in unnecessary ignorance of critical information. . . . The before-and-after picture of United States officialdom presents a stark lesson of the tragedies of war and propaganda repeated in the major media.
Ben H. Bagdikian, from the foreword
