Inhaltsangabe:Zusammenfassung: Der Nachrichtenfluss von Entwicklungs- zu Industrieländern wird seit Jahrzehnten heftig debattiert. Auch den britischen Medien wird eine unausgewogene Auslandsberichterstattung vorgeworfen, die ein verzerrtest Bild der Realität zeigt. Diese Arbeit analysiert die Nachrichten über Lateinamerika in der britischen Presse und richtet dabei besondere Aufmerksamkeit auf die Autoren der Artikel und darauf, wer über Lateinamerika zu Worte kommt. In welchem Maße sich Einheimische in den britischen Zeitungen Gehör verschaffen können wird dabei ebenso behandelt wie die Bedeutung von alternativen Quellen (z.B. andere Nachrichtenagenturen als die Großen Drei ). Die Gründe für redaktionelle Entscheidungen (wie z.B. der Einsatz von festen Korrespondenten anstelle von eingeflogenen Reportern, oder die Wahl der Nachrichtenagenturen) und journalistische Praktiken werden außerdem untersucht. Die folgenden Fragen sollen beantwortet werden: - Welches Bild vermittelt die britische Presse von Lateinamerika? - Auf welchem Wege fließen die Nachrichten von Lateinamerika zur britischen Presse? Wer schreibt sie? - Welche Informationsquellen werden genutzt, welche vernachlässigt? Wird Einheimischen und alternativen Quellen Gehör verschafft? Auf der Grundlage einer Inhaltsanalyse von fünf britischen broadsheet Zeitungen und Interviews mit britischen Korrespondenten in Lateinamerika sowie Lateinamerikanern, die in Großbritannien leben, weist diese Arbeit nach, dass viele der Bedenken, die vor 25 Jahren in den Debatten über globale Nachrichtenflüsse zum Ausdruck gebracht wurden, noch immer Relevanz haben. Obwohl sich viele Journalisten darum bemühen, dies zu ändern, tragen verschiedene Faktoren noch immer dazu bei, dass sie es meist nicht schaffen, die Öffentlichkeit mit ausgewogenen Berichten über Geschehnisse und Prozesse in Lateinamerika zu versorgen, die frei von Stereotypen sind und sich auf eine Vielzahl von Informationsquellen stützen. Hinweis: Diese Arbeit ist in englischer Sprache verfasst! Abstract: For several decades, the news flows from developing to industrialized countries have been a major issue of debate. In Britain, too, foreign reporting is said to be unbalanced, thus creating a distorted picture of reality. This study analyses the way in which news about Latin America is being covered by the British quality press, looking in particular at who writes the news and who is speaking about Latin America. It aims to [...]

One Soldier’s War is a visceral and unflinching memoir of a young Russian soldier’s experience in the Chechen wars that brilliantly captures the fear, drudgery, chaos, and brutality of modern combat. An excerpt of the book was hailed by Tibor Fisher in the Guardian as “right up there with Catch-22 and Michael Herr’s Dispatches,” and the book won Russia’s inaugural Debut Prize, which recognizes authors who write “despite, not because of, their life circumstances.” In 1995, Arkady Babchenko was an eighteen-year-old law student in Moscow when he was drafted into the Russian army and sent to Chechnya. It was the beginning of a torturous journey from naïve conscript to hardened soldier that took Babchenko from the front lines of the first Chechen War in 1995 to the second in 1999. He fought in major cities and tiny hamlets, from the bombed-out streets of Grozny to anonymous mountain villages. Babchenko takes the raw and mundane realities of war—the constant cold, hunger, exhaustion, filth, and terror—and twists it into compelling, haunting, and eerily elegant prose. Acclaimed by reviewers around the world, this is a devastating first-person account of war by an extraordinary storyteller.

We don’t have an energy crisis. We have a consumption crisis. And this book, which takes aim at cherished assumptions regarding energy, offers refreshingly straight talk about what’s wrong with the way we think and talk about the problem. Though we generally believe we can solve environmental problems with more energy—more solar cells, wind turbines, and biofuels—alternative technologies come with their own side effects and limitations. How, for instance, do solar cells cause harm? Why can’t engineers solve wind power’s biggest obstacle? Why won’t contraception solve the problem of overpopulation lying at the heart of our concerns about energy, and what will? This practical, environmentally informed, and lucid book persuasively argues for a change of perspective. If consumption is the problem, as Ozzie Zehner suggests, then we need to shift our focus from suspect alternative energies to improving social and political fundamentals: walkable communities, improved consumption, enlightened governance, and, most notably, women’s rights. The dozens of first steps he offers are surprisingly straightforward. For instance, he introduces a simple sticker that promises a greater impact than all of the nation’s solar cells. He uncovers why carbon taxes won’t solve our energy challenges (and presents two taxes that could). Finally, he explores how future environmentalists will focus on similarly fresh alternatives that are affordable, clean, and can actually improve our well-being. Watch a book trailer.
