This uniquely comprehensive assessment of the role of the media before, during and after wars draws on examples from the 20th century's "total wars" as well as "limited wars," terrorist campaigns, and complex emergencies such as Rwanda and Somalia. It argues that the media's performance in wartime may result as much from peacetime journalistic practices as from the special circumstances of war. The book concludes by assessing the impact of new communications technology and how the representation of future wars is likely to differ from those in the past.
