Degraded capability : the media and the Kosovo crisis by Phil Hammond( )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation The media served a highly partisan & propagandistic role in Nato's Kosovo war, uncritically reproducing official spin in a way that was incompatible with their proclaimed democratic role as objective purveyors of information. Degraded Capability is the first book to integrate a critical interpretation of Western policy toward the former Yugoslavia with analysis of media coverage of the Kosovo crisis & war. The first part of the book deals with the war itself & the build-up to it, placing this in the context of earlier Western intervention in Yugoslavia. Part two discusses key issues raised by the media coverage, including the demonization of the enemy, & the role of CNN. In the final section, contributors analyze how the war was reported in different countries around the world, including the United States, Britain, Germany, India, Greece, Russia, & France. The book offers an important corrective to the hysteria & misinformation that permeated media coverage. Subjects covered include the role of the Internet, the changing media-military relationship, the depiction & definition of 'war crimes, ' & how Yugoslav television was presented as a legitimate military target
The politics of genocide by Edward S Herman( )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this impressive book, Edward S. Herman and David Peterson examine the uses and abuses of the word 'genocide'. They argue persuasively that the label is highly politicized and that in the United States it is used by the government, journalists, and academics to brand as evil those nations and political movements that in one way or another interfere with the imperial interests of U.S. capitalism. Thus the word 'genocide' is seldom applied when the perpetrators are U.S. allies (or even the United States itself), while it is used almost indiscriminately when murders are committed or are alleged to have been committed by enemies of the United States and U.S. business interests. One set of rules applies to cases such as U.S. aggression in Vietnam, Israeli oppression of Palestinians, Indonesian slaughter of so-called communists and the people of East Timor, U.S. bombings in Serbia and Kosovo, the U.S. war of 'liberation' in Iraq, and mass murders committed by U.S. allies in Rwanda and the Republic of Congo. Another set applies to cases such as Serbian aggression in Kosovo and Bosnia, killings carried out by U.S. enemies in Rwanda and Darfur, Saddam Hussein, any and all actions by Iran, and a host of others."--Publisher description

Hope & folly : the United States and Unesco, 1945-1985 by William Preston( Book )

13 editions published between 1985 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Created in a burst of idealism after World War II, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) existed for forty years in a state of troubled yet oftern successful collaboration with one of its founders and benefactors, the United States. In 1980, UNESCO adopted the report of a commission that surveyed and criticized the dominance, in world media, of the United States, Japan, and a handful of European countries. The report also provided the conceptual underpinnings for what was later called the New World Information and Communication Order, a general direction adopted by UNESCO to encourage increased Third World participation in world media. This direction - it never became an official program - ultimately led to the United States's withdrawal from UNESCO in 1984. Hope and Folly is an interpretive chronicle of U.S./ UNESCO relations. Although the information debated has garnered wide attention in Europe and the Third World, there is no comparable study in the English language, and none that focuses specifically on the United States and the broad historical context of the debate. In the first three parts, William Preston covers the changing U.S./ UNESCO relationship from the early cold war years through the period of anti-UNESCO backlash, as well as the politics of the withdrawal. Edward Herman's section is an interpretive critique of American media coverage of the withdrawal, and Herbert Schiller's is a conceptual analysis of conflicts within the United States's information policies during its last years in UNESCO. The book's appendices include an analysis of Ed Bradley's notorious "60 Minutes" broadcast on UNESCO --

The political economy of human rights by Noam Chomsky( Book )

51 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second volume of The Political Economy of Human Rights remains one of the most controversial works produced by Chomsky to date. In a much discussed chapter on Cambodia, Chomsky and Herman questioned official Western narratives on the Khmer Rouge and suggested that the evidence available did not match up to the assertions being made at that time. These claims would resurface in a recent controversy with the Continental philosopher Slavoj Zizek, and readers will now be able to judge for themselves the veracity of Zizek's claims. The work also contains important analysis of Western interventions across Indochina, including Vietnam and Laos, and provides a searing critique of American imperial aspirations in the region

The global media : the new missionaries of corporate capitalism by Edward S Herman( Book )

36 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Global Media" describes in detail the recent rapid growth and crossborder activities and linkages of an industry largely composed of international conglomerates. It assesses the significance of the ongoing deregulation and convergence of global media and telecommunications systems and the rise of the internet. The authors argue that the most important features of this globalization process are the implantation, consolidation and concentration of advertisement-based commercial media and the parallel weakening of the 'public sphere'. It is contended that the United States provides the evolutionary model toward which the global media system is moving, and the history and characteristics of the U.S. System are described, along with developments in seven other countries around the world. Finally, the authors evaluate the defenses of the ongoing globalization process and discuss the forms of local, national and global resistance that have emerged. -- Back cover
