Description

'I don't remember seeing a flash. I didn't hear the blast -- I was too close. Like a distorted film, my vision stretched and turned yellow. I was just three feet from the bomb' On 7 July 2005 John Tulloch, a risk analyst and sociologist with an expertise in how the media report major international events found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time; on 8 July he was on the front page of virtually every major newspaper. He had became a victim of the risk he knew so well in theory; he had become one of those media stories he was so used to analysing. But he had also, like many others, become a victim of British and American foreign policy and been caught up, literally in a moment, in a terrible symbol of our particular time in history. From the three most recent wars (Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq) to media representations of disaster, from his own incredibly moving story to the relationships he built up with those who helped him, this compelling and profoundly important book is set to be a classic -- a work that captures both a moment and an era with sensitivity and precision.
