Editorial Reviews

Review

"War on Words is a valuable and thoroughly researched work, which highlights the need to protect those who, while telling us what we need to know, can find themselves in the line of fire. It faces us with the major issues of protection, impunity--and responsibility." - Tina Carr, director of the Rory Peck Trust

"In the new battlegrounds of global corruption, repression and cultural violence, democracy--and journalism--are targeted. This book is a must-read for every would-be reporter and democracy-seeking citizen." - Ross Howard, journalist, trainer, and president of Media&Democracy Group

"War on Words provides a sobering reality check on the threat of the sword to the pen. The authors also examine, critique and recommend a host of alternatives to safeguard journalists in an age in which journalists have become clear targets." - Michelle Betz, Betz International Media Consulting

"Lisosky and Henrichsen do an important service to journalism studies by addressing the topic empirically and demonstrating the salience of an issue on which the international community has been slow to face up to its responsibilities...." - Book review by William Horsley (Centre for Freedom of the Media) in Journalism.

"This is a valuable sourcebook on the safety of journalists in dangerous locations around the globe. . . . The authors correctly observe that cooperation among journalism advocacy groups is critical to such efforts. Summing Up: Recommended." - Choice

"With journalists under fire and under attack around the globe, with blurred definitions of who really is a journalist in our new media world of iPhones, flipcams, and tweets, Joanne Lisosky and Jennifer Henrichsen have written a well-timed and sorely needed book about what protections are in place and what new measures should be considered to better protect those who risk all to provide ground truth." - (John Owen, Professor of International Journalism, City University)

Book Description

According to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), more than 860 journalists have been killed while doing their jobs since 1992. Nearly nine out of ten journalists killed on the job were murdered or otherwise killed within their own nation. In the first five months of 2011, the Committee reports that journalists have died while reporting in Libya, Bahrain, Iraq, Mexico, Yemen, Egypt, Vietnam, Philippines, Tunisia, and Pakistan.
