From the Publisher"By providing a thoroughgoing and meticulous study of oneparticular kind of reporting from a number of perspectives, and byincorporating a variety of disciplinary insights, the book is ableto revisit familiar topics while moving us further into the digitalage."
"The most singular feature of Hoskins and O'Loughlin's'achievement in their comprehensive sweep of scholarship in thismulti-disciplinary field of war and media is its criticalassessment of existing paradigms and theories, and the developmentof new ones. The work represents an important and ground-breakingmilestone in the development of this relatively new specialismabout one of the oldest and most important spheres of humanexperience."
Joseph Oliver Boyd-Barrett, Bowling Green StateUniversity
"Whether we approach the field of contemporary war andcommunications through preferred optics of 'control', 'chaos' orperhaps 'complexity', this book challenges us all - and rightly so.It invites us to take seriously how today's media ecology not onlymediates contemporary wars, but becomes insinuated inside thecourse and conduct of warfare itself."
Simon Cottle, Cardiff University
"In today's new environment of an apparent never-ending war onterror, governments put together their media strategy with as muchcare as they construct their military one. This important bookhelps us understand the fragile relationship between war and mediaand examine it with a fresh and informed eye."
Phillip Knightley, author of The First Casualty, ahistory of war correspondents and propaganda
