Diese Arbeit wurde mit dem Mediations-Wissenschaftspreis 2004 der Centrale fur Mediation ausgezeichnet. Westliche Gesellschaften haben -interkulturelle Mediation- zu einem Trendbegriff stilisiert, der Losungen fur einen kompetenten Umgang mit Interkulturalitat verspricht. Eine diskursanalytische Perspektive auf die Forschung zu interkultureller Kommunikation und Konfliktmediation deckt implizite Ziel- und Fragestellungen beider Bereiche auf. Wahrend deduktive Konzepte interkultureller Mediation, die auf einer Ubertragung von Mediation auf den Problembereich interkultureller Kommunikation beruhen, Besonderheiten interkulturell bedingter Interaktion kaum erfassen konnen, wird erganzend eine induktive Konzeption vorgeschlagen: Gesucht wird nach Formen triadischer Verstandigungsforderung, unter denen beispielsweise Strategien einer -spontanen Laien-Mediation- erfolgsversprechend erscheinen."

Aus Sicht der Kulturwissenschaften ist interkulturelle Kommunikation als Forschungsfach längst in eine Theorie-Krise geraten - und gewinnt zugleich weiter an gesellschaftlicher Relevanz. Dominic Busch liest die bisherige Forschung unter einer neuen Perspektive, indem er interkulturelle Kommunikation als Dispositiv begreift. Dies gewährt neue Einblicke in unterschiedliche Festschreibungen vermeintlicher Wirkweisen von Kultur auf soziales Handeln. Auf Grundlagen der Ethnomethodologie wird so ein dispositivtheoretisch informierter Rahmen für eine zukünftige Erforschung interkultureller Kommunikation entwickelt.

African Media and the Digital Public Sphere examines, from theoretical and empirical perspectives, the claims that new information and communication technologies (ICTs) are catalysts of democratic change in Africa. Contributors do so from optimist, pragmatist-realist and pessimist stances through analyses of words and deeds of various political actors and organizations or institutions, from government units to political parties and party leaders to civil society organizations and minority groups. It is the first such publication contributed to by various African and Africanist scholars, based in Africa and around the world, whose research and/or practice activities focus on the relationship between new digital media and democracy on the continent.

For the first time, a work that contains all that should be known about the media's orientation of the public mind in democratic societies, why this manipulation takes place, and in what manner. The Bewildered Herd does not only analyse the media's current functions and forms in human society but it also traces and discusses the various transformations that this increasingly powerful social actor has gone through. The case study used for the purposes of this work is both unequal and unique in its nature, depth, and revelations. It compares the media's coverage in two of the world's leading democracies (The United States and France) of two of the world's most important armed conflicts and crises. It analyses both countries national, economic, cultural, and social interests as well as their respective media's coverage of these two conflicts and reveals how public perceptions are affected by this coverage and how the agendas of both the media and the political establishment is best served by this manipulation of public opinion in democratic societies. Mechanisms and tactics used in conditioning the public are extensively revealed and analysed in a manner that is so comprehensive in its approach and in its explanations.

How Did the World、s News Media React to 9/11? Not surprisingly, most of the world、s news media criticized the terrorists and offered sympathy and support to the United States in the days right after the September 11, 2001, attacks. But this phase didn、t last long. With a week or two, many of the world、s news media, even some in Western countries, were putting some of the blame for the attacks on the United States, citing its history of heavy-handed politics around the world. Many hoped the attacks would .wake up‧ the United States to this fact. But the subsequent U.S.-led wars in Afghanistan and Iraq dashed these hopes. Today, much of the sympathy and support generated from the tragedy has dissipated ! replaced, instead, by a widespread belief that political leadership in the United States is more arrogant, intransigent and self-absorbed than ever. This is the major theme of How the World、s News Media Reacted to 9/11, which contains 22 chapters, written by scholars and experts from around the world, that examine news media coverage of 9/11 from more than two dozen countries. The .arrogance‧ theme isn、t one that many U.S. politicians, journalists and citizens want to hear. But it、s the message that the world、s news media have been sending, and the question now is: Will U.S. media and politicians listen? Other key highlights in this book: 〃 American TV news channel news executives deliberately excluded controversial U.S. guests and opinions from their news coverage of 9/11 (Chapter 20). 〃 Media in Australia, Canada and other countries demonized Muslims and Arabs after 9/11 (Chapters 18 and 21). 〃 Ordinary Arabs and Muslims in the Middle East have distorted views of the United States, partly because their media do not provide all of the facts (Chapter 15), but Americans, too, misunderstand Muslims and Arabs, because U.S. media have failed to help Americans understand why much of the world hates their political leadership (numerous chapters).
