Review:

"These are all informative, well-written, and well informed contributions. The real value lies in its raising critical and ethical questions about the role of the media in times of crisis and war. The book should be of interest not only to scholars and students of communications and the media and to those interested in the Balkans, but also to anyone concerned with contemporary relationships between international politics and the media during war and crisis." -- Slavic Review"John Pilger and other experts in the field provide a rigorously researched exposi of the many fictions of the "war" and the mechanisms by which they were maintained...Required reading for anyone wishing to understand the war and the media's role in it."-- The New Internationalist "Insightful and compelling.. The Kosovo crisis is a painful reminder of how easily journalists fall in behind the party line of the powerful. "Degraded Capability" not only makes that case but serves as a model of what independent journalism can look like." -- Z Magazine
