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.

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.

Sure, they had the tits and bums, but then so do the other major papers in Melbourne, you just have to look a little more closely to find them. Often leading the way in investigative journalism, and often trumping the larger papers because of their devoted attendance at the courts, The Truth, catered to the high-end, and the low end of the market at the same time. The other papers could never claim that. Size: Folio ( 12"- 15" tall ). Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: Various. Quantity Available: 1.

First Edition. 2.65 kg; 401 pages, illustrated end pages, and the majority of the pages starting page 9 illustrated with black-and-white photographs, and cartoons taken from the Truth newspaper during the last 100 plus years. Illustrated dustwrapper. Both the book and dustjacket show no signs of damage. In Melbourne, when you talk of The Truth newspaper, everyone immediately thinks of the buxom unclad woman on page 3, and of scurrilous yellow journalism. Sure, they had the tits and bums, but then so do the other major papers in Melbourne, you just have to look a little more closely to find them. Often leading the way in investigative journalism, and often trumping the larger papers because of their devoted attendance at the courts, The Truth, catered to the high-end, and the low end of the market at the same time. The other papers could never claim that. Size: Folio ( 12"- 15" tall ). Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: Various. Quantity Available: 1.

Reflections; 150 Years of the Age
Foley, Steve -- Editor,
ISBN: 1864710861
Doubleday, New South Wales, 2004. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Fine/slipcased. Illustrator: Photographic. First Edition. 2.48 kg; VIII, 372 pages, indexed. Introductory essay "the cabbage patch that grew 1854-2004: a history by Geoffrey Blainey. The book considers politics, war, the city, witness, life, fashion, music, crime, culture and sport (although in Victoria how the last two can be separated?). With original colour illustrated slipcase. "Geoffrey Blainey sets the scene. In 1854, Melbourne did not have buildings more than three storeys high. We had chopped most of the trees and the main objects on the skyline were deep-sea ships, their bare masts an exercise in geometry. Come October 17 of that year, Governor Sir Charles Hotham, looking very splendid, entered a new building in William Street. Then just before a rendering of the Hallelujah Chorus there was a formal presentation of a new newspaper, beautifully mounted and printed in gold. Price: Sixpence. It was the first edition of The Age. The august gentleman survived only a year. He caught a chill opening the Melbourne Gasworks and died, but how fascinated he would be to see this volume 150 years later. It is titled Reflections, edited by Steve Foley. Actually it is not a history of The Age as a newspaper. It is a history of Melbourne and Victoria as it unfolded, edition after edition through the years. No dull stuff here. It has the vibrancy, the immediacy that came from the witnesses, the reporters, the photographers, who were there at the moment. I can remember a chief of staff who used to say: "I only want reporters who have mud on their boots." There is much evidence of that. There are reprints of many famous front pages, but there is much more. There are more than 1000 illustrations and photographs in this book. There was a time when journalists liked to think themselves slightly superior to photographers. The truth is the other way round. Australian press photographers have few peers anywhere in the world. For example, there are pictures taken by the amazing Bruce Postle. I don't think I ever saw him take a picture on the straight and level. There is a remarkable shot where Postle was held by the ankles on top of the Manchester Unity building while he recorded 70,000 demonstrators against the Vietnam War in 1970. He has another picture of Tommy Woodcock, one-time trainer of Phar Lap. Woodcock, now old, is lying with racehorse Reckless. The picture tells everything. They are lookingat each other with total love. Neville Bowler's great picture would have to be in every collection. It is a reminder there was a time when Melbourne had a reputation for wet weather. This was the day in 1972 when Elizabeth Street was turned into a flooded fury. Bowler has his camera at ground level and the picture is so powerful you almost push the book away for fear of being drowned. Then one of the best pictures you will ever see is Simon O'Dwyer's recent shot of Omeo. We are in the hot summer when Omeo is surrounded by fire and it takes all kinds of faith not to believe any second the town will disappear in the furnace. It is the colour, the awful red glow, coupled with the clouds of black smoke that make the picture so great. There is a man in the foreground fleeing for his life. This is an ashes on boots picture. Reflections' themes - politics, war, city, witness, life, fashion, music, crime, culture and sport - come with essays by top Age writers such as Michael Gordon, Andrew Rule, Shaun Carney, Michael Shmith, Greg Baum and Jane Sullivan. There is also a 46-page introduction by Geoffrey Blainey. Blainey's style is simple and direct. He doesn't give us dry bones, but tells Melbourne's 150 years as a warm social history and he says much of the information came from the pages of The Age. Yes, in the very first edition, The Age reported that two of Melbourne's policemen had disappeared. Obvious where they had gone, they had absconded to the diggings, looking for gold. Ballarat, Bendigo, Beechworth, Castlemaine became grand places. Even in 1871 Ballarat was bigger than Perth, Hobart and possibly even Brisbane. In Bendigo they had managed to build an opera house that held more people than the present Sydney Opera House. Crowds used to gather outside the offices of The Age in Collins Street in times of crisis, whether it was a mine disaster or something more mundane such as a Test match. One of the worst days was May 11, 1915, when, on page eight, there was column after long column that listed the dead and wounded under the heading "Heroes of the Dardanelles". This is a good book, a credit to its editor and one that I, certainly, would be terrified to lend.

 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Illustrator: Photographs. First Edition. "This is an unauthorised biography. When I began the research, I asked Rupert Murdoch to talk with me. He took over a year to consider and in that time I spoke with many of his colleagues and former associates around the world. He then agreed to be interviewed. I was conscious that, like any biographer of a living person with limited access to individuals and documents, I was dealing only with pieces of the mosaic that made up Murdoch's life. Because he was most helpful, and never sought to impose any conditions upon me, I sent him a draft of the manuscript. He chose to make no comment. Through the story of Murdoch's trajectory -- from Adelaide, through Sydney, London, New York and onto Hollywood -- I have tried to understand and describe how he and the communications revolution are changing the world."

Coloured illustrated dust jacket. Slight grubby mark on the half title page, otherwise in very good order. This impartial biography of a passionate man and his works and manages to separate fact from the fantasies which Norton enjoyed weaving around his origins, motives and activities. The result is a succinct, compelling story of an extraordinary character he used radical journalism and politics to achieve personal goals, doing much good and some harm along the way. A "Norton anthology" gives entertaining examples of the type of journalism which made Norton idolized by large sections of the working class but hated and feared by most conventional people. This is not the whole voice of radicalism in Australia's earlier years. But it is an important, neglected and greatly misunderstood part of a history. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
