We Chose to Speak of War and Strife
The World of the Foreign CorrespondentBook - 2016
In corners of the globe where fault-lines erupt into bloodshed and civil war, foreign correspondents have, for hundreds of years, 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 undeniably glamorous. These stories celebrate an endangered tradition. Where once despatches were trusted to the hands of a willing sea-captain, telegraph operator, or stranger in an airport queue prepared to spirit a can of undeveloped film back to London, today the digital realm has transformed the relaying of the news--even if the work of gathering it in the field has changed little.
