Reviews

"Moeller takes a morally complex and tightly interwoven theme--how the media sells disease, famine, war and death--and melds it into a coherent and powerful indictment of exactly how the right photo and words can shape public opinion with often devastating effects on the future... A book that, despite its scope and density, should be read by the public and media." -- The Press Christchurch, New Zealand
