Summary
This is a landmark history of Australian war journalism that covers the major conflicts of the 20th Century: World War I, World War II, Vietnam and Bosnia through to recent and ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
Summary
The authors (both of the U. of Melbourne, Australia) offer a history of how war has been reported in the Australian new media and its impact on the Australian national imagery from the colonial conflicts of the New Zealand Wars and the Boer War through to the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq in the 21st century. Their narrative explores such issues as the evolution of Australian war journalism, including the role of technology; war reporting and censorship; the political uses of the "Anzac spirit" (the supposedly shared national characteristics displayed by Australian and New Zealand soldiers during World War I); and representations of enemy and race.
