Peace Journalism

Front Cover
Hawthorn Press, 2005 - Business & Economics - 265 pages

Peace Journalism explains how most coverage of conflict unwittingly fuels further violence, proposing workable options to give peace a chance. Topical case studies--including the war in Iraq and the "war on terrorism"--are supported by theory, analysis, archive material, and photographs. The book attempts to contrast war journalism and peace journalism; show how the reporting of war, violence, and terror can be made more accurate and useful; and offer practical tools and exercises for analyzing and reporting the most important stories of our time.

Accessible and authoritative, Peace Journalism will prove valuable to those involved directly in journalism and all who wish to better understand the problems and solutions to better coverage of war and conflict.
