Editorial Reviews

Review

"As one would expect from a group of journalists, the chapters are well written, command attention, read well, and inform. . . Owen introduces each chapter with a brief essay about the subject matter and the author. These provide important frames for considering the topic and provide an overview about the direction of international reporting in the contemporary world." (Communication Research Trends, 2011)

"Exciting first-hand stories from the journalists make the book interesting and envelop the writers' wisdom with a depth of credibility unavailable to academic authors." (CHOICE, August 2009)"I applaud this wonderful contribution to journalism by some of the best practitioners in the business. Honesty, bravery, integrity and the determination to bear witness are the key ingredients. This book shows there can be no substitute for first-hand reporting from the field." Christiane Amanpour, Chief International Correspondent, CNN

"A significant and important book for existing and aspiring journalists: the cleverly and vigorously distilled wisdom of top practitioners on the critical issues facing international journalism the world over." Vin Ray, Director, BBC College of Journalism

"An impressive list of contributors who are some of the leading practitioners in the world of international journalism, tackling the most critically important issues facing global news." Jean-Paul Marthoz, foreign affairs columnist and Professor of International Journalism at the Université Catholique de Louvain

"Purdey and Owen have provided a wonderful opportunity to learn from the very best practitioners of international journalism, and no one else has pulled this content together so powerfully and so cohesively. John Owen is Europe's most respected authority on the perils of practicing journalism internationally, and his expertise shines through in every part of this excellent book." Joe Foote, Dean, Gaylord College of Journalism & Mass Communication University of Oklahoma

"John Owen and Heather Purdey have produced a much-needed book with leading practitioners writing about the real world of journalism they have seen at first hand." Adam Clayton Powell III, Vice Provost for Globalization, University of Southern California

I love the heart-to-heart testimonies of journalists who have risked their lives to bring the images of war to our newspapers and magazines. This is an assigned reading for my Journalism 339 course at Ashford University and I have been enjoying this text more than any other.

It is a good book. It reviews the work of top news agencies. But it falls short of writing techniques for international news and how to tackle the story from an international angle.
