Summary
"This book examines the role of the media in inciting conflicts within nations, as well as the adverse impacts of news reporting on international perceptions - and on policymaking. But it also reveals how valuable informed journalism can be. Above all, it highlights the dangers of basing analysis on vague assertions about deep human motivation, or on mythologies of the past and the present promoted by the protagonists themselves."--Jacket
