In the years since the conclusion of hostilities, a number of books about the Falkland Conflict have been published. Journalists At War is unique among them, and will become the definitive source for understanding journalists at work during unusual wartime conditions. The authors have interviewed every journalist who sailed with the Task Force to cover the war. The book allows them to recount their experiences and comment on their professional approaches and practices. This ethnographic approach, write the authors, offers near perfect vision, a kind of bell-jar condition, for observing journalists going about being journalists. Thus, Morrison and Tumber use the story of the coverage of this war as a general treatise on the profession of journalism: they demonstrate that other journalists, in similar situations, would show similar patterns of behavior. The authors also examine the handling of the news in London and question the role of information in liberal democracies during war time. Their conclusions about the medias relationships with the military, the government, and the public, are provocative, and differ from those expressed in previous accounts. Essential reading for undergraduate and graduate level students in journalism, politics and mass communication "A remarkably comprehensive analysis of how print and electronic journalism covered the 1982 Falklands War. . . . Their style is lucid. . . . The appendices and an index are helpful. Appropriate for upper-division undergraduates." --Choice "An exceptional contribution to the study of news work in particular and mass communication in general. . . . In sum, this work humanizes journalism by placing news workers in the contexts oftheir actions, and permits them to tell much of their own story. It is apparent that this story diverges in some ways from that told by other chroniclers of the Falklands coverage. In this respect, Morrison and Tumber have contributed to the dialogue about war, peace, and the news media. That this is a significant dialogue to pursue seems beyond question." --David L. Altheide, Arizona State University "Not only very readable and informative, but also important." --The News Line

A fascinating new insight into the Falklands Conflict, covering every aspect of its origins and the political and diplomatic response to the Argentinean action as well as illuminating accounts of the military action to retake the islands, at every level of command. In June 2002, exactly twenty years after the cessation of hostilities between Britain and Argentina, many of the key participants came together at a major international conference. This conference, held at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst and organized jointly by RMA Sandhurst and her sister institution Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth, aimed to re-examine the events of spring 1982 from the perspective that only twenty intervening years can bring. The Conference mixed those who had participated in the events of spring and early summer 1982, diplomats, politicians, civil servants, soldiers, sailors and airmen, with historians, political scientists and journalists. These accounts and interpretations of the conflict shed new light on one of the most interesting and controversial episodes in recent British history.

"Written in a clear and accessible style that would suit the needs of journalists and scholars alike, this encyclopedia is highly recommended for large news organizations and all schools of journalism." —Starred Review, Library Journal Journalism permeates our lives and shapes our thoughts in ways we've long taken for granted. Whether we listen to National Public Radio in the morning, view the lead story on the Today show, read the morning newspaper headlines, stay up-to-the-minute with Internet news, browse grocery store tabloids, receive Time magazine in our mailbox, or watch the nightly news on television, journalism pervades our daily activities. The six-volume Encyclopedia of Journalism covers all significant dimensions of journalism, including print, broadcast, and Internet journalism; U.S. and international perspectives; history; technology; legal issues and court cases; ownership; and economics. The set contains more than 350 signed entries under the direction of leading journalism scholar Christopher H. Sterling of The George Washington University. In the A-to-Z volumes 1 through 4, both scholars and journalists contribute articles that span the field's wide spectrum of topics, from design, editing, advertising, and marketing to libel, censorship, First Amendment rights, and bias to digital manipulation, media hoaxes, political cartoonists, and secrecy and leaks. Also covered are recently emerging media such as podcasting, blogs, and chat rooms. The last two volumes contain a thorough listing of journalism awards and prizes, a lengthy section on journalism freedom around the world, an annotated bibliography, and key documents. The latter, edited by Glenn Lewis of CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and York College/CUNY, comprises dozens of primary documents involving codes of ethics, media and the law, and future changes in store for journalism education.

'...it will appeal not only to students of journalism and media but also to anyone interested in the world around them' - Marie Kinsey, Times Higher Education Supplement 'Professor Tumber weaves together traditional and topical themes to produce a comprehensive overview of the media's role at times of conflict' - Stewart Purvis, City University London 'Presents a vivid picture of what it’s like to be working as a journalist on the front line during a ‘modern’ war. Through the eyes of leading correspondents in the field the authors examine their experience and its impact on the audience, their profession and their own lives' - The Information Centre about Asylum and Refugees in the UK (ICAR) Journalists Under Fire is the first book to combine a conceptually audacious analysis of the changing nature of war with an empirically rich critical analysis of journalists who cover conflict. In Journalists Under Fire, authors Howard Tumber and Frank Webster explore questions about the information war and journalistic practices. Frontline correspondents play a key role in information war, but their position is considerably more ambiguous and ambivalent than in the epoch of industrial war. They play a central role in the presentation of what is often spectacle to audiences around the world whose actual experience of war is far removed from combat. In the era of multi-national journalism, of the internet and satellite videophone, the book highlights central features of media reporting in contemporary conflict. Drawing on over fifty lengthy interviews with frontline correspondents, the authors shed light on the motivations, fears and practices of those who work under conditions of journalism under fire. Journalists Under Fire is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students and for scholars, academics and researchers in the fields of journalism, media and communication, Media Studies, sociology, international relations and war studies.

This volume seeks to illustrate the fundamental role of language in political action, focusing on the war in Iraq. It combines quantitative methods, based on a sophisticated modular corpus that was queried through special software with the aim of identifying regularly occurring lexical and semantic patterns, with classical discourse analysis, which seeks to investigate naturally occurring language in the context in which it is produced. Interpreting the field of politics quite widely, to include news reporting and a quasi-judicial inquiry into the behavior of politicians and journalists, discourses in the USA and the UK are considered. The central purpose of the volume is to gain insights not just into language, and the ways in which we can investigate it through a corpus, but also into the ways in which political action is realized through discourse.

"We live in increasingly promotional times. States, political parties and corporations as well as new social movements and diverse cultural interests today seek to put their message across via the media and in pursuit of disparate aims, enhanced public understanding and legitimacy. Introducing theoretical ideas and the latest empirical findings in this fast-developing field of media communication study," this book addresses such issues as: "the rapid growth of public relations in its impact on news production ; state information management strategies in times of internal political dissent ; political parties and mediated 'spin' conducted at national and local levels ; the historically changing nature of war journalism ; environmental activism and pressure group communication" and much more - back cover.
