The role of journalists in covering trauma and tragedy isn't new. Witnessing acts of violence, destruction and terror has long been the professional responsibility of countless print and broadcast reporters and photographers. But what is new is a growing awareness of the emotional consequences of such coverage on the victims, their families and loved ones, their communities, and on the journalists whose job it is to tell these stories. Trauma Journalism personalizes this movement with in-depth profiles of reporters, researchers and trauma experts engaged in an international effort to transform how the media work under the most difficult of conditions. Through biographical sketches concerning several significant traumatic events (Oklahoma City bombing, Columbine school tragedy, 9/11, Iraq War, the South Asian tsunami, Hurricane Katrina), students and working reporters will gain insights into the critical components of contemporary journalism practices affecting news judgment, news gathering techniques, as well as legal and ethical issues. Trauma Journalism calls for the creation - through ongoing education - of a culture of caring among journalists worldwide.

This book examines contemporary media stories about women who kill their children. By analyzing media texts, motherhood blogs, and journalistic interviews, the book seeks to understand better maternal violence and the factors that lead women to harm their children. The central thesis of this book is that media practices have changed dramatically during the past 50 years, as has society’s views on "appropriate" feminine behavior, yet definitions of characteristics of good mothers remain largely defined by 1950s sit coms, Victorian ideals, and Christian theology. The book contends that in spite of media saturation in American society, and the media’s increased opportunities to tell complex and nuanced stories, news media narratives continue to situate maternal violence as rare, unfathomable, and unpredictable. The news media’s shift in focus—from public service to profit-making industry—has encouraged superficial coverage of maternal violence as reporters look for stories that sell, not stories that explain. Motherhood blogs, in contrast, offer an opportunity for women to tell their own stories about motherhood, based on experience. Interviews with journalists offer insights into how the structure of their jobs dictates media coverage of this intimate form of violence.

Back in the golden age of humor books (late 1920s-early 1950s), when wits of the pantheon like Robert Benchley, James Thurber, and S.J. Perelman were producing their signature works, there was another singular satirist who more than held his own with such fast company: Will Cuppy (1884-1949). This factual funnyman's metier is dark comedy that flirts with nihilism. His agenda is baldly stated in such classic Cuppy book titles as How to Be a Hermit (1929), How to Tell Your Friends from the Apes (1931), and The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody (1950). This biography doubles as a critical study of a satirist whose shish-kebabing of humanity was often done through the veiled anthropomorphic use of animals. For a biographer, Will Cuppy represents a treasure trove of possibilities. He was a great humorist, and most of his best work is still in print, but until now he has never been the subject of a book-length study. His mesmerizingly complex and eccentric private life almost trumps the comic accomplishments of his public persona.

WHATEVER COMES is a dark comedy about an aspiring Irish-American writer in 1970s Cleveland and his decade-long sentimental fool's journey to find love and success. In this modern-day morality tale, twenty-something Max Galway endures an odyssey of trials and temptations, false goals and foolish pursuits. He claims his quest for literary fame is hijacked by an unholy trinity of family, work and romantic woes. But Galway is his own worst enemy en route to enlightenment.

"In 2014-16, I explored post-traumatic growth in the lives of Vietnam War vet-authors Philip Caputo, John Del Vecchio, Robert Olen Butler and Tim O'Butler. I learned how the past shaped their writing of enduring stories. In-depth interviews, chronicles and critical analyses enriched my appreciation for their craft. They have been mentors on history, literature and human nature, unselfishly sharing their time and insights". -- author

Unterwegs in den Krisengebieten der Welt – wie gehen Menschen mit Krieg und Gewalt um, was verändert sich angesichts des fremden Leids im Berichterstatter, welche Rolle kommt dem Zeugen zu? Carolin Emcke schreibt in ihren Briefen von Orten, die aus dem Blickfeld der Medien geraten sind, obwohl Krieg und Leid dort andauern: vom endlosen Bürgerkrieg in Kolumbien, von der Sklavenarbeit in den Freihandelszonen Nicaraguas, vom Überlebenskampf der Straßenkinder in der Kanalisation von Bukarest, von den serbischen Massakern an Kosovo-Albanern und den Vergeltungsanschlägen an Serben, dem Anschlag auf das World Trade Center am 11. September und den Kriegen in Afghanistan und im Irak. »Das Werk von Carolin Emcke wird Vorbild für gesellschaftliches Handeln in einer Zeit, in der politische, religiöse und kulturelle Konflikte den Dialog oft nicht mehr zulassen ... ihr Werk mahnt, dass wir uns dieser Aufgabe stellen müssen.« Begründung des Stiftungsrats zur Verleihung des Friedenspreises des Deutschen Buchhandels 2016
