9780765804419: Journalists in Peril (Media Studies Series)

Threats to journalists carry many different lessons, but one is constant: People who would intimidate or kill journalists are usually terrified that someone might find out. Journalists who want to protect one another need do nothing more than what should come naturally to them: report on threats to journalists--big threats and small threats, whether they are directed against the international luminaries of the profession or small timers. Non-journalists can also play a big part in the fight to protect journalists. Next to tough and timely reporting that establishes the facts of a case, nothing protects a journalist so much as public outrage and public support. Ordinary citizens can play an enormous role by pressuring thugs and tyrants who would like to stifle the freedom of the press. The freedom of journalists is consequently the bedrock of freedom for all people. Chapters and contributors to 'Journalists in Peril' include: "The Clash of Arms in Exotic Locales" by Peter Arnett; "Press Freedom--Balkan Style" by Kati Marton; "Grim Prospects for Hong Kong" by John Schidlovsky; "Russian Reporters--Between a Hammer and an Anvil" by losif M. Dzyaloshinsky; "Defiant Publishing in Nigeria" by Dapo Olorunyomi; "Turkish Journalists on Trial" by Ahmet Emin; "In America, Justice for Some" by Ana Arana; and "Blood and Fear in Italy" by Candida Curzi. The tragic accounts detailed in 'Journalists in Peril' are poignantly written and are important reading for all concerned with democracy in the world, especially political scientists, government officials, and those involved in the various communications professions.

About the Author:

The late Nancy J. Woodhull was editor of the Media Studies Journal and executive director of the Media Studies Center. She also co-edited, with Robert W. Snyder, Media Mergers, also available from Transaction.



Robert W. Snyder is managing editor of the Media Studies Journal, a historian, and co-author of Metropolitan Lives: The Ashcan Artists and Their New York. He has taught at Princeton University and New York University.

From Library Journal:

Hundreds of journalists have been killed on assignment while covering wars or murdered because of what they wrote, photographed, or broadcast. Originally published as an issue of Media Studies Journal in 1996, this collection of articles includes personal accounts of journalists working in dangerous situations as well as pieces about journalists who have lost their lives. Contemporary reporters, including Peter Arnett and Martha Teichner, discuss their experiences in war zones such as the Persian Gulf and Yugoslavia, the difficulty of working under repressive regimes like Hong Kong, Nigeria, and Turkey, and the ten immigrant journalists who have been murdered in the United States in the past decade. These 26 pieces deliver valuable information, but many of them are very short, and none is footnoted. Nevertheless, Woodhull, the late editor of Media Studies Journal, and Snyder, its managing editor, have produced a book that will be of interest to academic journalism collections that do not subscribe to their publication and to public libraries where journalism material is in demand.?Judy Solberg, George Washington Univ., Takoma Park, MD
