The article presents analysis of several published materials on films, documentary films, film directors, production, advertising, popular culture, journalism, society, media policy, terrorism, war, communities, culture and politics. Elaborating on the manuscript "Norwegian media image of the war in Afghanistan: peacekeeping or aggression," it mentions about the wisdom with which the newspapers "Aftenposten" and "VG" focus on several issues without making any controversial statements. Norway's role as a major military player in the peacekeeping process is however absent in the article. The article also analyzes the Espen Ytreberg's manuscript "Formatting participation within broadcast media production," which deals with the role of production team in formatting the program. Along with these manuscripts several books are mentioned in the article including: "The Baltic media world," "Conflict and communication online," by Rune Ottosen and "Transnational cinema in a global north: Nordic cinema in transition," by Gunnar Iversen.
