Media, War and Terrorism by Peter van der Veer

Book Description

This collection of essays covers the media and public debate dimension of the events of 9/11 and beyond, from the point of view of Middle Eastern and Asian countries. The first part of the book deals with the use of the media as an instrument of warfare, the growing significance of religion, the emergence of transnational media and a transnational public sphere and the relationship between the West and the rest of the world. The second part of the book contains nine case studies relating to different parts of the Middle East and Asian world, all with a strong empirical focus, while at the same time elaborating the book's theoretical concerns.

Value of Comparison by Peter van der Veer Value of Comparison, Paperback (June 2016)

In The Value of Comparison Peter van der Veer highlights anthropology's continuing ability to gain insights on the whole through the comparative study of the particular and unique while critiquing the quantitative social sciences for their sweeping generalizations.

Handbook of Religion and the Asian City by Peter van der Veer Handbook of Religion and the Asian City, Hardback (June 2015)

Presents a creative and innovative role of urban aspirations in Asian world cities. This book shows how projects of secularism come up against projects and ambitions of a religious nature, a particular form of contestation that takes the city as its public arena.

Modern Spirit of Asia by Peter van der Veer Modern Spirit of Asia, Paperback (November 2013)

Challenges the notion that modernity in China and India are derivative imitations of the West, arguing that these societies have transformed their ancient traditions in distinctive ways.
