Running Amok - when News Deadlines, Family and Foreign
Bowling, Mark
ISBN: 0733620426
Hodder 2006  2006 
  Trade paperback. 308pp. index. Very good. It was supposed to be his dream job. Mark Bowling, a foreign correspondent with the respected Australian Broadcasting Corporation, was assigned to cover Indonesia. His arrival in Jakarta coincided with the downfall of President Suharto after more than three decades. So began a four-year roller-coaster ride for a journalist covering a nation's dangerous descent into turmoil.Mark's book is a uniquely personal exploration of the rich but frenetic life of a foreign correspondent. At times his days swung out of control as he juggled news story deadlines with commitments to his young family.He travelled across the islands of Indonesia documenting historic events familiar to many of us who live in this region - East Timor's bloody struggle for independence, separatist crises in Aceh and West Papua, and religious conflicts in Ambon. He searched for signs of humanity and dignity in a society rife with violence, poverty, prejudice and greed.Mark was not alone on this posting. His wife Kim and their two young children moved with him from Australia to Jakarta and had to settle into a very different life there.

Unreliable Sources
Simpson, John
ISBN: 0230741835
Macmillan 2010  2010 
  8vo softcover 593pp index, b/w illus. very good+. One of the greatest reporters of his day writes a brilliant and typically opinionated account of how the British press has reported key moments in our history. Through many decades of groundbreaking journalism, John Simpson has become not only one of the most recognizable and trusted British personalities, but has transferred his skill to books with multiple bestselling success. With his new book he turns his eye to how Great Britain has been transformed by its free press down the years. He shows how, while the press likes to pretend it's independent, they have enjoyed the power they have over the events they report and have at times exercised it irresponsibly. He examines how it changed the world and changed itself over the course of the last hundred years, from the creation of the "Daily Mail" and the first stockings of anti-German sentiment in the years leading up to the First World War, to the "Sun's" propping up of the Thatcher government, and beyond. In this self-analysis from one of the pillars of modern journalism some searching questions are asked, including whether the press can ever be truly free and whether we would desire it to be so. Always incisive, brilliantly readable and never shy of controversy, "Reporting the Twentieth Century" sees John Simpson at the height of his game as one of Britain's foremost commentators.nnAbout the AuthornJohn Simpson is the BBC's World Affairs Editor. He has twice been the Royal Television Society's Journalist of the Year. He has also won three BAFTAs, including the Richard Dimbleby award in 1991 and the News and Current Affairs award in 2000 for his coverage, with the BBC News team, of the Kosovo conflict. He has written three volumes of autobiography, Strange Places, Questionable People, A Mad World, My Masters and News from No Man's Land, The Wars Against Saddam, Days from a Different World and, most recently, Not the End of the World.

Imagologies: Media Philosophy
Taylor, Mark C. and Esa Saarinen
Routledge March 29, 1994  1994 
  8vo softcover 320pp very good. When the world has become wired, nothing remains the same. To explore the electronic frontier with Mark Taylor and Esa Saarinen is to see the world in a new light. A revolutionary period needs a revolutionary book and Imagologies is that book. This is a work that demands to be engaged, questioned and pondered. As the web of telecommunications technology spreads across the globe, the site of economic development, social change and political struggle shifts to the realm of media and communications. In this provocative, innovative and remarkable book, Taylor and Saarinen challenge the reader to rethink politics, education, religion, architecture, economics and even thinking itself. To read Imagologies is to step into the twenty-first century and it is a fascinating, dizzying journey.
