Description - The Media of Conflict by Tim Allen

International media coverage of contemporary wars, it has been argued, often encourages serious misunderstandings of complex situations. The shortage of information and the reporting only of those events easily understood by Western audiences compounds misconceptions. The contributors to this book are concerned to get behind ethnic categorizations and examine how they have been constructed. The text begins from the perspective that ethnicity is essentially a negotiated and relational phenomenon, not something static, primordial or "natural", and that understanding must be embedded in political economy. The first section provides an introductory framework to war and the media, while the second part explores media representations of war in Greece, Iraq, the former Yugoslavia, Liberia, Zimbabwe, Rwanda and Kenya.
