Casanova was a book lover and other naked truths and provocative curiosities about the writing, selling, and reading of books by John Maxwell Hamilton( )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this irreverent analysis of the book industry, John Maxwell Hamilton provides a rich history of the book - from the days when monks laboriously hand-copied texts to the recent tidal wave of Titanic tie-ins - and gives an overview of the state of the industry today, including writing, marketing, promoting, reviewing, ghost-writing, and collecting." "Throughout are tidbits of information that will fascinate bibliophiles everywhere. For instance, did you know that Walt Whitman was fired from a government job because his boss found Leaves of Grass, and its author, immoral? Or that the most stolen books in the United States are the Bible, followed by The Joy of Sex? How about that Dan Quayle's 1989 Christmas card read "May out nation continue to be a beakon of hope to the world?" Or that Casanova was an ardent lover of books as well as women?" "Hamilton offers an inside look at the history and business of book reviewing, explaining why, more often than not, reviewers resemble "counselors at a self-esteem camp" and examining the enormous impact of the "Oprah effect" on the market. As the self-appointed Emily Post of the book world, he advises publishers, authors, and readers on proper etiquette for everything from book parties and jacket photos to book signings and promotion by friends and relatives."--BOOK JACKET

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ever since the invention of the telegraph, journalists have sought to remove the barriers of time and space. Today, we readily accept that reporters can jet quickly to a distant location and broadcast instantly from a satellite-connected, video-enabled cell phone hanging from their belts. But now that live news coverage is possible from virtually anywhere, is foreign correspondence better? And what are the implications of recent changes in journalistic technology for policy makers and their constituents?. In From Pigeons to News Portals, edited by David D. Perlmutter and John Maxwell Hamilton
In many wars, by many war correspondents by George Lynch( )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"There are few people in the world who have more opportunity for getting close to the hot interesting things of one's time than the special correspondent of a great paper," George Lynch, a veteran British correspondent, wrote in Impressions of a War Correspondent, published in 1903. He made it all sound glorious, just the way war correspondents like to recount their experiences on the battlefield. But in a few months he had less to exult about. Lynch and a distinguished throng of foreign correspondents with high hopes of a good story assembled in Tokyo to cover the Russo-Japanese War--a monum
A journalist's diplomatic mission Ray Stannard Baker's World War I diary by Ray Stannard Baker( )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the height of World War I, in the winter of 1917-1918, one of the Progressive era's most successful muckracking journalists, Ray Stannard Baker (1870-1946), set out on a special mission to Europe on behalf of the Wilson administration. While posing as a foreign correspondent for the New Republic and the New York World, Baker assessed public opinion in Europe about the war and postwar settlement. American officials in the White House and State Department held Baker's wide-ranging, trenchant reports in high regard. After the war, Baker remained in government service as the president's press s

Edgar Snow, a biography by John Maxwell Hamilton( Book )
12 editions published between 1988 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Snow's classic Red Star Over China was a journalistic coup. Based on interviews with Mao Zedong and his followers, who were in hiding, cut off from Western observers for a decade, his bestseller revealed that Chinese Communism was a cohesive popular movement, not a ragtag army of bandits. But Snow (1905-1972), the adventurous reporter from Kansas City, Missouri, and stowaway to the Far East, told Americans things they did not want to hear. The Cold War public ignored his measured portrayal of a protectionist Soviet Union crippled by WW II and not bent on spreading communism. During the McCarthy witch-hunt period, this romantic idealist, who once called Mao an agrarian democrat, was blamed for misleading Americans. Even as Snow's political opinions matured, his message that China wanted closer ties with the U.S. went unheeded. Written by a journalist who worked in the U.S. Agency for International Development, this serviceable biography is as plainspoken as its down-to-earth subject. The early chapters on Snow's incredible adventures across Asia are the best."--Publisher's Weekly

Despite the importance of foreign news, its history, transformation and indeed its future have not been much studied. The scholarly community often calls attention to journalism's shortcomings covering the world, yet the topic has not been systematically examined across countries or over time.

While the old economic models supporti
