War and Words (T Payne)

Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War presented moral dilemmas that divided the nation. The changing ways that Australian newspapers covered the conflict both reflected these dilemmas and inflamed them. Trish Payne's insightful analysis of Australian reporting of the Vietnam War traces the shifts in emphasis of the coverage, the influence of government on the news that reached the public, the extent of our allegiance to the American viewpoint and the lack of a balancing Vietnamese perspective.

Soft cover, 340 pages.
