Media Frames of the "Af-Pak War"

Perspectives of Local Journalists & Content Analysis of Mainstream Newspapers in Pakistan, Afghanistan & Iran

By Sher Baz Khan

Mr. Khan's book is innovative and important, in terms of journalism and communication science. It offers new insights into the working conditions and the framing of and by journalists in three media cultures (Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran). Khan's Media-Military Relation (MMR) model offers an enlightening contextualization of the working conditions of journalists as well as of previously underestimated constraints on journalists' "selection" of press photos and captions. -- Prof. Dr. Peter Ludes, Professor of Mass Communication at Jacobs U., Bremen (Series: The World Language of Key Visuals.
