    schema:reviewBody ""Hawkins reveals and explains the highly distorted and assimilated responses to foreign conflicts by major actors in the world. Many of the world's deadliest conflicts are largely ignored - becoming of-the-radar 'stealth conflicts'. How can this be possible in a world with unprecedented levels of access to information, and unprecedented levels of attention and resources being devoted to foreign affairs? This book addresses this issues, looking at the agenda-setting processes of policymakers, the media, the public and academics in relation to foreign conflicts. This book is critically important in understanding why actors do and do not respond to foreign conflicts, particularly considering that so many of the world's major conflicts do not attract a response."--BOOK JACKET." ;
