Note "The Responsibility to Protect in Darfur: The Role of Mass Media traces the evolution of international norms regarding state sovereignty and human rights that led to the articulation of "Responsibility to Protect" and its subsequent adoption by the international community in 2005. This book provides insight into the complex nature of the Darfur crisis, filling a serious hole left by media coverage. It then documents U.S. media coverage of the crisis in terms of framing that would mobilize public opinion and international intervention."--BOOK JACKET
