From the Publisher

The media served a highly partisan & propagandistic role in Nato's Kosovo war, uncritically reproducing official spin in a way that was incompatible with their proclaimed democratic role as objective purveyors of information. Degraded Capability is the first book to integrate a critical interpretation of Western policy toward the former Yugoslavia with analysis of media coverage of the Kosovo crisis & war. The first part of the book deals with the war itself & the build-up to it, placing this in the context of earlier Western intervention in Yugoslavia. Part two discusses key issues raised by the media coverage, including the demonization of the enemy, & the role of CNN. In the final section, contributors analyze how the war was reported in different countries around the world, including the United States, Britain, Germany, India, Greece, Russia, & France. The book offers an important corrective to the hysteria & misinformation that permeated media coverage. Subjects covered include the role of the Internet, the changing media-military relationship, the depiction & definition of 'war crimes,'& how Yugoslav television was presented as a legitimate military target.
