Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
... it... may provide a good look into a topic that few jourbanalists understand well enough to cope with in their stories. Communication Booknotes Quarterly
Booknews
Allen (development studies, London School of Economics) and Seaton (Centre for Communication and Information Studies, U. of Westminster) present 14 essays concerning media representations of contemporary ethnic violence and war. Countering the media suggestions that these conflicts are caused by the return of primordial loyalties and hatreds after the collapse of the Cold War, or that mass slaughter can be explained by reference to the inherently evil nature of individuals or groups, they ask why such views have gained a currency. They not only examine the role of the media in inciting conflicts, but also reveal how valuable informed journalism can be. Distributed by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c.
