There are many different kinds of sub-national conflicts across Asia, with a variety of causes, but since September 11 2001 these have been increasingly portrayed as part of the global terrorist threat, to be dealt with by the "war on terror". This book examines a wide range of such conflicts, showing how, despite significant differences between them, they have in common the role of the media as interlocutor, and exploring how the media exercises this role. The book raises a number of issues concerning how the media reports different forms of political violence and conflict, including issues of impartiality in the media's relations with both governments and insurgents, and how the focus on the "war on terror" has led to some forms of violence, notably those employed by states for political purposes, to be overlooked.
