Allen, Tim and Seaton, J, eds. (1999) The media of conflict: war reporting and representations of ethnic violence. Zed Books. ISBN 9781856495707
This book demonstrates how international media coverage of contemporary wars often encourages serious misunderstandings of complex situations. The shortage of information and the reporting only of those events easily understood by western audiences compounds misconceptions. The contributors are concerned with getting behind ethnic categorizations and examining how they have been constructed from the perspective that ethnicity is essentially a negotiated and relational phenomenon, not something static, primordial or 'natural.'
