Hallock (communication, Point Park U.) draws on experience gleaned from his 30-year career as a journalist as well as his academic training (he earned his Ph.D. in journalism in 2005) to unravel interactions of the press, government, and the populace with regard to war. He looks closely at the Truman Doctrine and the war in Korea, doctrines of intervention, nondeclared wars and the Vietnam conflict, nation building and freedom fighting, and Iraq and the doctrine of first strike, among other topics. This is an in-depth study of substantial importance for students, journalists, and the news-reading public. (A[c] Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
