Summary By exploring the role of both culture and mass media, this volume fills a crucial void in the study of war and peace. Outstanding scholars such as Vincent Mosco, Herbert Schiller, Riane Eisler, and Majid Tehranian provide a history and overview of critical mass media research and investigate emerging issues dealing with the ongoing debate over communication in war and peace. Several chapters deal specifically with the role of communication culture in the GulfWar, while others discuss more general themes, including the military/industrial/communication complex, cultural imperialism, and transnational control of communication. Many of the essays offer a uniquely feminist reading of war and peace, a perspective typically unacknowledged in mainstream communication work. This timely book also weaves peripheral concerns like multiculturalism, international communication law, women and peace, and communication technology into the primary themes of media and war.
