The interaction between media and foreign policy is a critical dimension of the so-called age of 'new military humanitarianism'. The media is now more effective in gathering and distributing information all over the world and media coverage of humanitarian wars allows for information and images to reach a wide audience with great immediacy and realism. For policy making, the 24/7 news cycle means high levels of exposure to fast-breaking international stories receiving global attention and producing a powerful 'do something!' effect. This topical book widens the debate beyond US media and policy making by considering the case of Western and Eastern European media and policy processes. It tests the wider application of existing theoretical approaches and provides useful comparisons, allowing the reader to draw conclusions on the media-policy relationship. It is an excellent resource for all those interested in political communication, European politics and media studies.

English summary: Media, war and the experiences of combatants stand in ambivalent, partly contradictory relation to each other, which has been reflected and analysed in many ways by the various academic disciplines. Be it the experiences of Swiss mercenaries in the Triple Alliance War in Paraguay, the role of an officer of the Wehrmacht in the deportation of Greek Jews from Rhodes, the re-interpretation of Maya the Bee as a Nazi cartoon or trauma processing in folk and punk music - the contributions of the present volume take diverse approaches to the tense relationship between war, war experience and its representation in the media. The volume is completed with reviews and brief descriptions of relevant new publications and a bibliography of literary, linguistic, historical, film and art studies published in 2007. German description: Medien, Krieg und die Erfahrungen der Kriegsteilnehmer stehen in einem ambivalenten, zum Teil widerspruchlichen Verhaltnis zueinander, das von den diversen Wissenschaftsdisziplinen vielfaltig gespiegelt und analysiert wird. Ob es um die Erfahrungen Schweizer Soldner im Triple-Allianz-Krieg in Paraguay geht, um die Rolle eines Wehrmachtoffiziers bei der Deportation griechischer Juden von Rhodos, die Umdeutung der Biene Maja als NS-Zeichentrickfilm oder die Verarbeitung von Kriegstraumata in Folk- und Punk-Musik - die Beitrage des vorliegenden Bandes nahern sich unter vielfaltigen Fragestellungen dem Spannungsverhaltnis von Krieg, Kriegserfahrung und ihrer Reprasentation in den Medien. Erganzt werden die Beitrage durch Rezensionen und Kurzinformationen zu einschlagigen Neuerscheinungen sowie eine Bibliographie 2007 erschienener literatur-, sprach-, geschichts-, film- und kunstwissenschaftlicher Studien.

Ibrahim Ahmadov stellt in der empirischen Studie über die Medienbotschaften des ehemaligen Al Qa’ida-Anführers Usama Bin Ladin fest, dass die Staatlichkeit an sich von den transnationalen Gewaltakteuren nicht negiert wird. Der Autor zeigt, dass das politische Handeln zwar der Staatlichkeit voran geht, das Staatswerden wird jedoch zum absoluten Ziel für die politischen Akteure im globalen System. Da dieses Ziel eine Dominanz im globalen Kommunikationsraum voraussetzt, zeichnet sich das gegenwärtige weltpolitische System durch die verlängerte Existenz von Übergangsakteuren aus.

In recent years there has been an explosion in the usage and visibility of the language of human rights, but what does this mean for the role of the media? For evolving ideas about human rights? And for the prospect of shared cosmopolitan values? Ekaterina Balabanova argues that in order to answer these questions there needs to be a deconstruction of monolithic ways of thinking about the media and human rights, incorporating the spectrum of political arguments and worldviews that underpin both. Ten case studies are presented which illustrate many of the problems and challenges associated with the relationship between the media and human rights. The examples range from cases of humanitarian intervention to analysis of global human rights campaigning on refugee issues; from immigration and asylum, to genocide, freedom of speech and torture. Anchored in an appreciation of the political conflicts and compromises at the heart of international human rights agreements, The Media and Human Rights is an invaluable resource for students studying media and human rights, international politics, security studies and political communication.

Veteran journalist Pond asks, Can Europe tame the Balkans? She first describes the 1990s Yugoslav wars and the region's yearning to join the European Union. Exploring the premise that the Balkans should be treated as an integral part of today's Europe, she describes how the lure of EU membership is shaping the Balkans--and how Balkan developments are reshaping the EU. Drawing on hundreds of interviews and decades of experience as a foreign correspondent, Pond describes the political, economic, and ethnic challenges as each Balkan land seeks to vault from the 19th to the 21st century. Bulgaria, Romania, Kosovo, Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Albania, Serbia, and Montenegro must all carry out painful reforms to qualify for EU membership by establishing democratic institutions, rule of law, and general tolerance. Pond examines the tension between these demands and traditional mindsets engendered by years of poverty, corruption, and chauvinism.--From publisher description.

Présentation sous http://www.zedbooks.co.uk/ : "This is the first book to ask whether there is a specifically European dimension to some of the major issues in Women's Studies. In doing so, it fills some of the gaps in our knowledge about women and enriches debates hitherto dominated by Anglo-American influences. Among the new areas of enquiry opened up are : Europe's experience of repeated warfare has impacted significantly on women. Hence contributions focus on women and militarism, and ethnic cleansing as an attack on the family. The abadingly problematic relationship between feminism and anti-semitism, and issues of migration and 'whiteness' in a context where racism reflects the colonial histories of particular European countries. The importance of passion, the emotions and psychoanalytical theory for the politics of certain European countries. The decline of the welfare state across Europe, the issue of the relationship between womens rights and human rights, and the rise of the phenomenon of the single woman. Reading feminism from a European perspective enables readers to reflect upon the ways changes in political, social and cultural positions and practices over the past century in Europe have impacted on feminist thinking and theorizing. The volume also raises important issues about the transfer of feminist concepts across cultures and languages. And to English-speaking audiences the volume will offer different viewpoints on some of the key debates.
