How were the American people prepared for the war on Iraq? How have political agents and media gatekeepers sought to develop public support for the first preventive war of the modern age? Bring 'Em On highlights the complex links between media and politics, analyzing how communication practices are modified in times of crisis to protect political interests or implement political goals. International contributors in mass communication, political science, and sociology address how U.S. institutional media practices, government policy, and culture can influence public mobilization for war.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...Provides carefully documented analysis, in chapters that stand both as self-contained studies and as building blocks in a multifaceted explanation as to how the media and public culture prepared the American public for the untested policy of so-called preventive war. * Global Dialogue *
This book shows how the U.S. corporate media enabled the Bush administration's policy and raises serious questions concerning the role of the media in a democracy-and the need for the media to play more critical and democratic roles in debating issues of war and peace and national security. -- Douglas Kellner, UCLA; author of Media Culture and Media Spectacle and the Crisis of Democracy * From The Foreword *
