about

This book engages with the Chinese mediation of wars and conflicts in the global environment.
Proposing a new cascading media and conflict model, it applies this to the study
of war correspondents from six levels: media-policy relations, journalistic objectivity, role
perceptions, news framing and peace/war journalism, news practices, and audience.

Based on interviews with 23 Chinese journalists and case study analysis of the Libyan War,
Syrian War, Afghanistan War and Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the book demonstrates that
a new breed of Chinese war correspondents has emerged today. They undergo a complex
and nuanced mediated communication process. Neither traditionally Chinese in their
approach nor western in their perceptions, they are uniquely pragmatic in negotiating their
roles in a complex web of internal and external actors and factors. The core ideology seemsto be anti-West in defiance of the US hegemony and the bias of global media as well as
neutral-Muslims.

Exploring the role perceptions, values, norms and practices of contemporary Chinese war
correspondents who go outside China to bring the 'distant culture' back home, this text is key
reading for scholars and students in international journalism, international communication,
war and peace studies, international relations and Chinese studies.
Shixin Ivy Zhang (Ph.D., University of Leeds) is Assistant Professor in Journalism Studies at the University of Nottingham Ningbo, China. Her first research monograph is Impact of Globalization on the Local Press in China: A Case Study of the Beijing Youth Daily (2014).
