We Chose to Speak of War and Strife

The World of the Foreign Correspondent

Book - 2016
Rate this:
In corners of the globe where fault lines seethe into bloodshed and civil war, foreign correspondents have, since the early nineteenth century, been engaged in uncovering the latest news and--despite obstacles bureaucratic, political, and violent--reporting it by whatever means available. It's a working life that is difficult, exciting, and glamorous. These stories from the last two hundred years celebrate an endangered tradition. Where once dispatches were trusted to the hands of a willing sea captain, telegraph operator, or stranger in an airport line prepared to spirit a can of undeveloped film back to New York, today the digital realm has transformed the relaying of the news--if the work of gathering it in the field has changed little.
