This new offering from the Monash Asia Institute is a meaningful collection of thoughtful research on a very important aspect of the formulation of the Australian world view; in particular, how we view our regional neighbours (and they us), and how those views are formed through the news media prism. As the editors note in their introduction, this collection explores some of the more prominent media issues concerning both the news media in Southeast Asia and media-mediated relations between Australia and the regional states.
