Summary
"Anthony Collings takes us into the world of independent journalists and the daily challenges they face confronting dictators, hostile military, and narcoterrorists. Unfettered by any ties to those in positions of power, these guerrilla journalists are often the first on a story - whether reporting on corruption in Mexico, organized crime in Russia, or sexual scandal in the Middle East - and accordingly face the brunt of their subject's wrath." "Relying on interviews, professional contacts, and his own experiences, Collings explores the dilemmas and strategies of journalists who persevere in the face of war, repressive governments, and criminal aggression, with particular emphasis on the role of the Internet."--Jacket
