Journalism and the New World Order Vol.1

Gulf War, National News Discourses and Globalization

The New World Order, proclaimed by President Buch in connection with the Persian Gulf War 1990-91, is a challenge for research on war journalism, propaganda and international opinion making. This comparative study of media coverage of the conflict in five countries, Finland, Germany, Norway, Sweden and the USA, offers a unique empirical study with a multi-methodological approach.
