Summary
"[This book] provides readers with a set of unique perspectives on two major wars: the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most handbooks are written in retrospect, summarizing long-term trends in research. In contrast, the chapters in ... [this book] have all been written while the wars were being fought; each chapter provides a distinct angle on the wars and society as they continue to evolve ... the chapters provide some of the first empirical social and behavioral science research on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan"--Introd. Managing humanitarian information in Iraq -- Role of contractors and other non-military personnel in today's wars -- Evaluating psychological operations in Operation Enduring Freedom -- Armed conflict and health : cholera in Iraq -- Iraqi adolescents : self-regard, self-derogation, and perceived threat in war -- pt. 3. The war back home : the social construction of war, its heroes, and its enemies. Globalization and the Invasion of Iraq : state power and the enforcement of Neoliberalism -- The Pakistan and Afghan crisis -- Mass media as risk-management in the "War on Terror"--Talking war : how elite US newspaper editorials and opinion pieces debated the attack on Iraq -- Debating anti-war protests : the microlevel discourse of social movement framing on a University Listserv -- Making heroes : an attributional perspective -- Making the Muslim enemy : the social construction of the enemy in the War on Terror -- pt. 4. The war back home : families and young people on the home front. Greedy media : army families, embedded reporting, and war in Iraq -- Military child well-being in the face of multiple deployments -- American undergraduate attitudes toward the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan : trends and variations
