Abstract:

War reporting has made a massive impression on the public not only in how wars are fought but why they are fought. The ability of the public to "see" what is happening at the front changed the public's attitude to war in very many respects and even where a war may be "popular" the involvement of the press led to criticisms that have changed war almost in equal measure to the changes brought about by weapons technology. The book will be a compilation of historical and contemporary stories of the war correspondent and battlefield photographer from the earliest days of modern war reporting to the present. It will seek to determine the changes in style, method and practice of the work of the war correspondent and examine the changes in attitudes to, and how the public view war from the high point of imperialism to the present day jihad. This book will be of interest to journalists, academics, students and in general history. By mixing historical analysis with contributions from modern war reporters it will analyse such subjects as the role of propaganda in winning over the public to support wars of aggression, the portrayal of war as entertainment, the use of technology in war reporting and the lives, and sadly often the deaths of those who take on this most dangerous and disturbing vocation. Since modern war reporting commenced following the inventions of the electric telegraph and the camera there have been many different approaches to how the news should be brought to the reader and later the listener and viewer.
