Subject index. Author index."By calling for a 'war on terrorism' after the tragic events of 9/11, the United States has initiated an open-ended and global conflict-one that can be directed against any adversary anywhere in the world. How this 'war' is framed and represented in the media thus becomes a crucial area of inquiry. This becomes all the more necessary in this age of instant global communication, live reporting, and a proliferation of 24 hour news channels."This timely and topical book assess the effects of 9/11 and its aftermath on the political, cultural and professional contexts of news. The contributors explore media representations of the 'war on terrorism' particularly in the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the 1991 Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq. They also reflect on the complex relationship that exists between mass media and governments in wartime and discuss the emergence of new players such as Al-Jazeera."Other key themes include the blurring of information with entertainment, gender dimensions of wars, and the role of new media technologies in the production, distribution and reception of media messages worldwide. Among the important features of this volume are that it is transnational in its scope and perspective and that it brings together both well-known scholars and a range of experienced professionals."Well-written and offering a range of critical perspectives on issues of direct relevance to the contemporary world, this book will be wisely welcomed by practising journalists, students of journalism and mass media, and anyone wanting to know what lies behind the 'news' that they see daily on their television screens." 266 pp. N° de ref. de la librería 49463
