a| "Journalism, Power, and Investigation presents a contemporary, trans-national analysis of investigative journalism. Beginning with a detailed introduction that examines the relationship between this form of public communication and normative conceptions of democracy, the book offers a selection of spirited contributions to current debates concerning the place, function and political impact of investigative work. The fourteen chapters, produced by practicing journalists, academics, and activists, cover a range of topics, with examples drawn from the global struggle to produce reliable, in-depth accounts of public events. The collection brings together a range of significant, present-day investigations from across the world. These include an assignment conducted in the dangerous sectarian environment of Iraq, a close engagement with Spain's Memory Movement and the work of radical charity Global Witness. Chapters also examine the troubled political legacy of Wikileaks, legal constraints on investigative journalism in the UK and the bold international agenda of the investigative collective the Ferret. This is alongside other analytical pieces on events in Bermuda, Brazil, and Egypt. Investigative journalism is a form of reportage that has long provided a benchmark for in-depth, critical interventions. Along with case studies, Journalism, Power and Investigation gives students and researchers an insight into the principles and methods that animate this global search for truth and justice"-- c| Provided by publisher.
