Summary:
Andrew Hoskins provides a fascinating critical account of the unique relationship between the media and conflict. He reveals the influence the media has on the public's perception of war, from the televised "losing" of the Vietnam War, to the satellite-driven footage from the Gulf in 1991, and finally to the 24-hour coverage by journalists of the recent Iraq War--publisher's description.
