About this book

Do the news media have any role in the transformation of war and warfare? Focusing on television, this book argues that the news media alters the cognitive and strategic environment of the actors of war and politics and therefore changes the way these interact with one another.

Reviews

"Social media has become a trending arena for citizen journalists and civil society groups. This book is quite fascinating in how De Franco builds on the works of founding scholars, such as Marshall McLuhan, Erving Goffman, and Joshua Meyrowitz. An intriguing part of the book is the author's interest in the works of McLuhan, drawing attention to the World Wide Web and the global village concept. Media Power shows the potential in applying the four-dimensional definition of power to the Internet and social media platforms together with the semiotic method used in analyzing television media. It may be productive to see how the framework fits into new media platforms. The book will be useful to journalists, students, academics, and individuals interested in history, foreign policy, political science, international relations, mass communication, and war and conflict studies."

- International Journal of Communication

"Media Power is a thorough qualitative study, which presents a compelling case for the use of a four-dimensional definition of media power in relation to the agenda, the process, the channel and the instruments an approach which also holds the potential

to be applied to new and emerging media platforms." - Media, Culture and Society
