Abstract

Review of: Reporting from the Danger Zone: Frontline journalists, their jobs and an increasingly perilous future, by Maria Armoudian. New York and Abingdon: Routledge, 2017, 155pp. ISBN 978-1-138-84005-8.

IN HIS memoirs of his life as a foreign correspondent, British journalist Richard Beeston recalled: "We went to wars and revolutions in our drip-dry suits and button-down shirts— armed with a note book and an Olivetti portable typewriter. For us there were no steel helmets, flak jackets and armour plated cars...in those more innocent days we somehow managed an amateur and neutral status and were unlikely to become the target of hostage-takers or the victims of religious fanatics. The twenty-first century is a more dangerous time." (Beeston, 2006)
