Reviews

"Philip Seib continues to show why he is seen as a major authority in the field of media, conflict, peace and security. This outstanding anthology offers not only innovative thinking by distinguished experts about how the media influence (for better or worse) issues of war and peace; it takes the reader into the dust and danger of combat. It is an inspiring contribution to this still-new, but crucial, area of peace-and-conflict studies. Let's hope that among its readers will be many decision-makers who ignore this basic truth: that wars begin and end in the minds of men."

Dr. Keith Spicer, Director, Institute for Media, Peace & Security, University for Peace, Geneva

"News coverage is a significant element in shaping public understanding of international events and issues, whether it be the U.S. led war against Iraq in 2003 or the Asian tsunami in 2004. This book is a valuable resource in helping citizens understand how and why news workers cover events in the way they do and why they choose the visual images we remember long after those events."

- Suzanne Huffman, Schieffer School of Journalism, Texas Christian University

"This book is a sophisticated and wide ranging collection of essays on media and conflict. Included are cutting-edge analyses that address the production of media messages, their effects, and the reasons why it is all so important. In a world where mass media help to construct the nature of conflicts, this book offers important insights into the complexities of media's mobilization of opinion."

- Laura Roselle, Elon University

"This useful anthology illustrates both the variations and the common ground of those who study communications and political science." - Choice
