Book Review: Conflict, Terrorism and the Media in Asia (Benjamin Cole ed., RoutledgeCurzon 2006) [hereinafter Cole].

The fourth and latest release in a series of publications on the impact of media and changes in societal culture in Asia, this book provides a study of the subnational conflicts across Asia and the global "War on Terror." The authors examine the condition of free press, access to media, and diversity in news reporting to explore how media is used as a tool to facilitate ideological coalition, shelter populations, and maintain political stability.
