Forging War

The media in Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Hercegovina

This is a remarkable book which chronicles the media propaganda which prepared the populations of ex-Yugoslavia for war in their front yards.

This study of the political manipulation of the media in Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, and Hercegovina before and during the war argues that political struggles for media control are early warnings of war and a form of preparation for it. When a government severely restricts or prohibits opposition voices, this book asserts, the manipulation of public opinion by government-controlled media is itself a means of denying the free exchange of information and ideas.
