From Our Editors

Unfortunately, it happens to the best of us at one time or another. We’ll be watching poignant, horrifying images on the evening news and instead of whipping into action to stop the brutality, we hungrily devour the sensational coverage before deciding to change the channel to our favourite sitcom. In the relentless pursuit for the almighty dollar, have the media moguls turned our brains to mush and our hearts to stone? Susan D. Moeller explores the issue in Compassion Fatigue.

Editorial Reviews

"Moeller takes a morally complex and tightly interwoven theme--how the media sells disease, famine, war and death--and melds it into a coherent and powerful indictment of exactly how the right photo and words can shape public opinion with often devastating effects on the future.... A book that, despite its scope and density, should be read by the public and media.."
