The recent Iraq War has been heavily scrutinised by all aspects of the media. Never before have so many images of conflict been so accessible to the public. Andrew Hoskins analyses the relationship the media has had on the public's perception on the Iraq war and how the governments in the US, the UK and Iraq have tried to manipulate the public conscience via the media.

MEDIA REVIEWS
British intellectual Andrew Hoskins new book Televising War is a must read. Hoskins study of television s dependence on the image as its bread and butter provides a nuanced analysis of the recent shift in public opinion regarding Iraq. Televising War provides a considered, measured dissection as a rebuke to T.V. s sensationalism New York Press, 6/21/04 6/27/04
Hoskins take on televised war is not pretty for the very reason that Western television s pictures of war are usually all too pretty. Hoskins convincingly argues that the significance of news decreases as the demand for immediacy increases. Essential. --A.R. Cannella, Choice, 2/15/05 "CHOICE "
