Media and Political Conflict: News from the Middle East / Edition 1by Gadi Wolfsfeld
Pub. Date: 06/28/2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
The news media have become the central arena for political conflicts today. Previous work on this subject has been limited to looking at the role of the news media in either a particular conflict (such as the Gulf War) or a particular type of conflict (such as terrorism). Media and Political Conflict is the first book that offers a dynamic and comprehensive approach to studying confrontations as small as protests and as large as wars, and applies this approach to analyze three conflicts: the Gulf War, the Palestinian Intifada, and the attempt by the Israeli right wing to derail the Israeli-Palestinian peace accord.
