Reporting the War

Freedom of the Press from the American Revolution to the War on Terrorism

John Byrne Cooke

Palgrave Macmillan Trade

John Byrne Cooke's fascinating look at wartime reporting from the American Revolution to Iraq is now available in paperback. The press has consistently influenced public perception of wars, and has often affected their course. Cooke--son of news icon Alistair Cooke--reveals how the government has tried to suppress opposing opinion, and  how the press has struggled to preserve the principles of the Founding Fathers. At a time when reporters are routinely being censored, arrested, kidnapped and even killed, this is a must-read exploration of freedom of the press in wartime.
