What If The South Had Won The Civil War? 4 Sci-Fi Scenarios For Hbo's 'Confederate', Allen C. Guelzo

Their new project, Confederate, proposes an alternate America in which the secession of the Southern Confederacy in 1861 actually succeeds. It is a place where slavery is legal and pervasive, and where a new civil war is brewing between the divided sections. (excerpt)

The Mediatization Of War: A Comparison Of The American And German Media Coverage Of The Vietnam And Iraq Wars, Gerd Horten

Gerd Horten

The last fifty years have seen the further expansion of the role of media during times of war.
