A hell of a lot more than another journalism textbook
... A journey of a lifetime in international reporting and an invitation to a new generation to venture out in the world.
--Charles M. Sennott, executive editor of GlobalPost (added by author)
With global ecologies, economies, and geopolitics tipping deeper into dark, uncharted territory, we desperately need global news coverage more than ever. A new generation of reporters aren't waiting for the media to figure out how to pay them: Braving multiple uncertainties, they're heroically trying to plug widening gaps in our understanding, lest the world we know tips into one and vanishes.
With this invaluable, succinct, and compulsively readable primer
, legendary foreign correspondent Mort Rosenblum hauls young journalists up some of the steepest slopes of their learning curve. They and their readers ought to be enormously grateful for what he's done. --Alan Weisman, author of The World Without Us
Are 'Foreign Correspondents' an endangered species? Not for Mort Rosenblum, who writes an informative and witty book for young professionals and those interested in the wider world. He broadens ''Old Media's'' pool and offers important guidance to anyone who wants to plunge into international reporting.
--Deborah Amos, National Public Radio
