Summary:
GENERAL & WORLD HISTORY. 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.
