Communicating War: Memory, Media & Military
Communicating War: Memory, Media & Military
by Sarah Maltby
Edition: Paperback
Price: 14.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Mitchell, 2 Sep 2011
Communicating War is a great read- it offers a real introduction to the key debates around the relationship between war and media. It is topical and insightful, and I would recommend this book as either an introduction to the core arguments, or as a more detailed exploration of key issues. Brilliantly complied, this marks a real change in approaches to war and media. Great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!, 2 Sep 2011
Thornham's book is hugely engaging and provides unique insight into the world of social gaming. I particularly enjoyed her chapter on the rationalisaton of gaming (among young male gamers) where she offers exciting perspectives on the relations between gender, technology and power. A must read for anyone interested in the social dynamics of new media and game playing identities.
