This book is an unprecedented and timely rigorous comparative study of how Al-Jazeera, the Qatari non-state-run network that has become an influential global media actor, and NHK, the huge Japanese public broadcaster and a major member in Japan National Press Club, covered the 2003 American preemptive move into Iraq. It analyses the two stations’ editorial interplay with the warring parties and their commitment to professional news broadcasting at wartime amid assumptions of vulnerability to those in power in Qatar and Japan, two staunch US allies. It is a long-awaited addition to the foregoing scant comparative research on Arab and Japanese media. In short, the book methodically combines media studies, media history, content analysis, framing theory, war studies, and IR theory in order to provide the reader with a simplified scientific interdisciplinary comparative study of the ways Arab and Japanese media, as represented by the two aforementioned broadcasters, treated the 2003 Iraq War along the debates on the changing nature and mission of journalism after the 9/11 attacks.
