This is the first book to focus on media and conflict -- primarily international conflict -- from multidisciplinary, cross-national and cross-cultural perspectives. Twenty-two contributors from around the globe present original and thought provoking research on media and conflict in the United States, Central America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Russia, and Asia. The research presented enquires into the media's role in different types and levels of conflict: global, where states and non-state actors are involved, including the conflict over globalisation and the World Trade Organisation (WTO); international, where the protagonists are states, including for example the Arab-Israeli conflict and the Tokdo conflict between Japan and Korea; and domestic including ethnic and environmental conflicts. The book includes works both on the traditional print and electronic media and on new media including the Internet. It explores the role media play in different phases of conflict determined by goal and structure including conflict management, conflict resolution, and conflict transformation. This thought-provoking volume is essential reading for students, researchers, and practitioners
