Theatre of War

War and the Media: Reporting Conflict 24/7 edited by Daya Kishan Thussu and Des Freedman; Vistaar Publications, New Delhi; J B D'SOUZA This is a collection of essays by 25 contributors, a collection that tries to provide a framework for analysing the interplay between the media and its representations of war and conflict in an era of sophisticated information warfare and news management. The contributors are mostly journalists or teachers in the communications field, but there are also a couple of sociologists who have successfully concealed their thoughts from this unsophisticated reviewer at least in gobbledegook. Practically all the contributions were written before the US began its assault on Iraq. The contents give fascinating insights into how the conduct of war is presented and perceived.
