    America & Iraq: Seduced By Fear

    I remember the run up to the Iraq war I was in Cambodia and our satellite feed had only one station from the United States, with other news channels from Singapore, China and the BBC from England. The US channel was completely different from the others it was relentless in presenting the kind of textual imagery that Dr. Tokars analyzes in this book. Textual imagery can be powerful persuasion. Dr. Tokars walks us through the themes ¿ Iraq as barbarian and warlike, as linked to 9-11, as armed with weapons of mass destruction, as terrorists, as people in need of liberation and democratization ¿ themes that were repeated and repeated until there was an air of inevitability. Missing were the voices of Iraqis Dr. Tokars argues that what we need as responsible citizens is access to texts that place the voices of the other at the center, authentic voices. Dr. Tokars, as an Iraqi American, is empathetic as only a person with loved ones in the midst of a crisis can be. For her the story is personal. If American citizens had seen Iraqis as individuals, had heard their stories, would they have supported the invasion? Dr. Tokars challenges us her readers to be organic citizens, to commit ourselves to decipher and challenge textual messages, to think, question, act, and participate. The goal of the organic citizen is ¿to place at the center the lived experience of the other.¿ That is also the central message of Anthropology as a discipline if we can never really know another people, we can learn enough to enter into dialogue. Dr. Tokars gives us an intriguing analysis and a challenge to live our lives as better citizens of the world.

    America & Iraq: Seduced By Fear

    Dr. Amaal V.E. Tokars enlightens the reader in many areas of the perception of communications, but none to equal an awareness of how Textual Imagery might in the form of a group of words or pictures to communicate information, but is it the perception of our image that creates reality and not neccessarily the text or photos that were communicated to us.
