From World War II to the war in Iraq, periods of international conflict seem like unique moments in U.S. political history—but when it comes to public opinion, they are not. To make this groundbreaking revelation, In Time of War explodes conventional wisdom about American reactions to World War II, as well as the more recent conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Adam Berinsky argues that public response to these crises has been shaped less by their defining characteristics—such as what they cost in lives and resources—than by the same political interests and group affiliations that influence our ideas about domestic issues. With the help of World War II–era survey data that had gone virtually untouched for the past sixty years, Berinsky begins by disproving the myth of “the good war” that Americans all fell in line to support after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. The attack, he reveals, did not significantly alter public opinion but merely punctuated interventionist sentiment that had already risen in response to the ways that political leaders at home had framed the fighting abroad. Weaving his findings into the first general theory of the factors that shape American wartime opinion, Berinsky also sheds new light on our reactions to other crises. He shows, for example, that our attitudes toward restricted civil liberties during Vietnam and after 9/11 stemmed from the same kinds of judgments we make during times of peace. With Iraq and Afghanistan now competing for attention with urgent issues within the United States, In Time of War offers a timely reminder of the full extent to which foreign and domestic politics profoundly influence—and ultimately illuminate—each other.

Amid the ongoing and volatile debate over the nature and potential of peace journalism, this volume presents visionary insights from some of the most prominent scholars in the field. The significant empirical studies included here will provide foundation data for communication studies. The contributors broaden the purview and terrain of peace journalism to include new media, and offers essays on the eff ects and the content of global communications. In sum, the thirteenth volume of Peace and Policy deepens our empirical knowledge of the nature and effects of conflict, while underscoring the increase in numbers of participants and breadth of communications. For the past half decade, these contributors have worked independently and collaboratively to increase systematic understanding of the value of peace journalism and communication to civil society. Th e group has contributed to a complex articulation of the various frames of conflict coverage. In so doing, they have clarified the structural, systemic and cultural aspects of global violence. In turn, this has helped create institutions, programs and strategies for enhancing constructive peace communication that will increase mutual understanding, cooperation, reconciliation and transform confl ict. Peace journalism has reframed understanding of confl ict from a tug-of-war between two parties in which one side's gain is the other's loss, to the terms of relationships between various sides. It considers the context and the need to identify a range of stakeholders broader than the sides directly engaged in violent confrontation. In sum, it leads to understanding of the distinction between stated demands and underlying objectives, so as to identify voices working for creative and non-violent solutions, and finding ways to transform and transcend the lines of confl ict.

Excerpt from Inter Arma: Being Essays Written in Time of War But the man of letters who is torn from his customary province, whatever that may be, and who is drawn by his emotion into the whirlpool of the hour, cannot change his nature, and that emotion has to be expressed in terms of his own intellectual habits. He must be careful not to allow his zeal to drag him into employ ments where he will be, not only of no use, but perhaps, in his small way, an encumbrance. The author, untrained in military affairs, who is led by his ardour to criticise the conduct of the allied generals in the field, is apt to cut a sorry figure. At best, he is like the clown in the circus, who gives directions after the grooms have carried them out. At worst, he increases the public confusion and adds his atom to the distraction of disorganised opinion. It is, perhaps, best for him to pursue his accustomed lines of study, allowing all his thoughts and views to be saturated by the passionate interest he takes in the war, and so react, in his own way and to the extent of his own powers, against the satiety and lassitude which the extraordinary prolongation of the struggle inevitably produces. There is an excellent reason why those who write with some seriousness and care should continue during the war to be careful and serious. It has hardly been enough observed that we have sent out for our national defence in this war a soldiery far more widely and deeply educated than has ever been the case before. This is true of our French allies even more fully than of our selves, while from my personal knowledge I can testify that the Russian soldiers expressly desire not to have light literature or the ephemeral forms of fiction sent out to them, but crave a supply of solid and thought ful, even of instructive books. Every author who has for many years held the ear of the public, within how ever confined a circle, must be aware of a curious, and an affecting, fact. A large proportion of those who habitually read him, and whose minds have become attuned to his, are separated from him by leagues of sea, and are occupied in noble and unprecedented service.
