& the Reconstruction of Imperial Ideology
The Political Economy of Human Rights:

After the Cataclysm is the story of how the US press prints the news it sees fit to print. It is a valuable, carefully documented assessment of Western reporting on post-1975 Indochina. Especially comprehensive in its treatment of Cambodia, it provides a trenchant and healthy critique of news media coverage that has usually been as tendentious as that dealing with the early years of US military intervention in Indochina.
