Praise For…


'Keith Somerville has produced a penetrating analysis of the role of radio as a propaganda tool for the incitement of genocide. He provides wide ranging and painstaking explanations of key examples - Nazi Germany, the Balkans, Rwanda and post-election Kenya - to give a devastating picture of how broadcast media can systematically poison political debate and the public sphere. This comprehensive account will be of interest to historians as well as scholars of politics, communications and media.'
