Selling War : The Role of the Mass Media in Hostile Conflicts from World War I to the "War on Terror" Paperback / softback

Edited by Josef Seethaler, Matthias Karmasin, Gabriele Melischek, Romy Wohlert

Description

This is the first textbook for students in this area - part of Intellect's "ECREA" series.

This book is the first to bring together international scholarship to explore the changing relationships between war, media, and the public from multidisciplinary perspectives and over an extended historical period, spanning from World War I through the so-called "War on Terror." "Selling War" will make an important contribution to scholarly debates on the role of the mass media in modern warfare.

It provides a balanced mixture of theoretical/methodological and empirical chapters and addresses wide areas of research from the role of traditional media, war blogs and eyewitness journalism; of war correspondents and embedded journalism; of propaganda, wartime public relations and information warfare.

Moreover, aspects of media economy and media ethics, as well as cultural studies approaches, are integrated.
