What are we doing in Afghanistan? The Military and the Media at War

Edited by Kevin Foster

Weeks after the Twin Towers fell, Australian forces joined their coalition allies in the fight against the Taliban in Afghanistan. Over the succeeding years, while US and British reporters have provided compelling dispatches from the front lines, the Australian public has barely glimpsed its own men and women at war. This volume offers the first comprehensive analysis of the policies and practices that have shaped Australian media coverage of the war in Afghanistan. What are we doing in Afghanistan? exposes the culture of secrecy that dominates the Australian military's relations with the media. Here, for the first time, is a penetrating look at the information war behind the war in Afghanistan.
