International media coverage of the war in Iraq provoked public scrutiny as well debate amongst journalists themselves.

Media at War offers a critical overview of the coverage in the context of other preceding wars, including the first Gulf War, and opens up the debate on the key questions that emerged during the crisis. For example,

- What did we actually gain from ′live, on the spot′ reporting?

- Were journalists adequately trained and protected?

- How compromised were the so-called ′embedded′ journalists?

Tumber and Palmer′s analysis covers both the pre-war and post war phase, as well as public reaction to these events, and as such provides an invaluable framework for understanding how the media and news organisations operated during the Iraq Crisis.
