Brute Reality is a fascinating analysis of the attempts by Western countries to justify their increasingly violent foreign-policy agendas and assert the contradictory interests of a transnational elite. Stuart Price provides a critical insight into a number of influential structures that have helped shape contemporary attitudes to warfare. The book contains a wealth of transcripts and media sources, including Channel Four's coverage of 9/11 and the rhetorical pronouncements of leading politicians. Beginning with the state of 'war' created after the September 11th attacks, Price follows the strategic adjustments begun during the Iraq adventure, and includes reference to the modifications in policy carried out during the Obama Presidency. Students of media, film and journalism will find this book an invaluable resource for the study of power, rhetoric, and mediation.
