Degraded capability the media and the Kosovo crisis by Phil Hammond ( )
14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation The media served a highly partisan & propagandistic role in Nato's Kosovo war, uncritically reproducing official spin in a way that was incompatible with their proclaimed democratic role as objective purveyors of information. Degraded Capability is the first book to integrate a critical interpretation of Western policy toward the former Yugoslavia with analysis of media coverage of the Kosovo crisis & war. The first part of the book deals with the war itself & the build-up to it, placing this in the context of earlier Western intervention in Yugoslavia. Part two discusses key issues raised by the media coverage, including the demonization of the enemy, & the role of CNN. In the final section, contributors analyze how the war was reported in different countries around the world, including the United States, Britain, Germany, India, Greece, Russia, & France. The book offers an important corrective to the hysteria & misinformation that permeated media coverage. Subjects covered include the role of the Internet, the changing media-military relationship, the depiction & definition of 'war crimes,' & how Yugoslav television was presented as a legitimate military target

The politics of genocide by Edward S Herman ( )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this impressive book, Edward S. Herman and David Peterson examine the uses and abuses of the word 'genocide'. They argue persuasively that the label is highly politicized and that in the United States it is used by the government, journalists, and academics to brand as evil those nations and political movements that in one way or another interfere with the imperial interests of U.S. capitalism. Thus the word 'genocide' is seldom applied when the perpetrators are U.S. allies (or even the United States itself), while it is used almost indiscriminately when murders are committed or are alleged to have been committed by enemies of the United States and U.S. business interests. One set of rules applies to cases such as U.S. aggression in Vietnam, Israeli oppression of Palestinians, Indonesian slaughter of so-called communists and the people of East Timor, U.S. bombings in Serbia and Kosovo, the U.S. war of 'liberation' in Iraq, and mass murders committed by U.S. allies in Rwanda and the Republic of Congo. Another set applies to cases such as Serbian aggression in Kosovo and Bosnia, killings carried out by U.S. enemies in Rwanda and Darfur, Saddam Hussein, any and all actions by Iran, and a host of others."--Publisher description

The global media : the new missionaries of corporate capitalism by Edward S Herman ( Book )
30 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Global Media" describes in detail the recent rapid growth and crossborder activities and linkages of an industry largely composed of international conglomerates. It assesses the significance of the ongoing deregulation and convergence of global media and telecommunications systems and the rise of the internet. The authors argue that the most important features of this globalization process are the implantation, consolidation and concentration of advertisement-based commercial media and the parallel weakening of the 'public sphere'. It is contended that the United States provides the evolutionary model toward which the global media system is moving, and the history and characteristics of the U.S. System are described, along with developments in seven other countries around the world. Finally, the authors evaluate the defenses of the ongoing globalization process and discuss the forms of local, national and global resistance that have emerged. -- Back cover
