Reporting Nuclear Pakistan: Security Perceptions and the Indian Press

Teresa Joseph (Author)
Synopsis Reporting Nuclear Pakistan elucidates the role of the media in the process of securitisation and the construction of identities. It examines the linkages between security perceptions and the mass media. Keeping the South Asian scenario in perspective, the book systematically explores the nature of the security discourse in the Indian press, focusing on the coverage of Pakistan and its nuclear programme. Through a rigorously documented content analysis of Indian newspapers over the years, it provides an analytical account of how Pakistan and its nuclear programme are framed and represented in the Indian press. In the process, the book unveils the performance of the press vis-a-vis official government policy towards Pakistan and its nuclear policy, as well with regard to India's own nuclear policy. The book provides critical insights into the interrelation of politics and the mass media, theoretical conceptualizations of security, India-Pakistan relations and the nuclear programmes of both India and Pakistan. It will be of interest to scholars of political science and international relations, security studies, disarmament, mass communication, and South Asia, as well as to policy makers, media professionals, and those concerned about world peace and nuclear non-proliferation.
