Overview

Triumph Of The Image: The Media's War In The Persian Gulf, A Global Perspective / Edition 1

The triumph of image over reality and reason is the theme of this book, which contains studies assembled from many countries throughout Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Together they suggest that it was not the war in the Persian Gulf that we witnessed but rather imagery orchestrated to convey a sense of triumph and thus to achieve results that reality and reason could never have obtained. The book offers contributions from thirty-four authors in eighteen countries, including short samplings from the media of several regions. The authors explore the social, economic, and political context of media coverage in their countries, the domination of one image in most of them, and the struggle for alternative perspectives.
