Chinese War Correspondents : Covering Wars and Conflicts in the Twenty-First Century Hardback

Edited by May Tan-Mullins, Adam Knee

Part of the Palgrave Series in Asia and Pacific Studies series

Description

This book engages with the Chinese mediation of wars and conflicts in the global environment.Proposing a new cascading media and conflict model, it applies this to the studyof war correspondents from six levels: media-policy relations, journalistic objectivity, roleperceptions, news framing and peace/war journalism, news practices, and audience. Based on interviews with 23 Chinese journalists and case study analysis of the Libyan War,Syrian War, Afghanistan War and Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the book demonstrates thata new breed of Chinese war correspondents has emerged today.

They undergo a complexand nuanced mediated communication process.

Neither traditionally Chinese in theirapproach nor western in their perceptions, they are uniquely pragmatic in negotiating theirroles in a complex web of internal and external actors and factors.

The core ideology seemsto be anti-West in defiance of the US hegemony and the bias of global media as well asneutral-Muslims. Exploring the role perceptions, values, norms and practices of contemporary Chinese warcorrespondents who go outside China to bring the `distant culture' back home, this text is keyreading for scholars and students in international journalism, international communication,war and peace studies, international relations and Chinese studies.
