Dangerous Lives: War and the Men and Women Who Report It, Anthony Feinstein.
2 Anthony Feinstein. Dangerous Lives: War and the Men and Women Who Report It
Toronto: Thomas Allen Publishers 2003 0887621317 / 9780887621314 1st Hard bound New New 43.4 x 15.5 x 2.5 cm 
In January 2002, the world watched in horror as photographs of Daniel Pearl with a gun to his head flashed across television screens. When the "Wall Street Journal" reporter's body was discovered a short time later, he joined the growing list of people who have lost their lives trying to cover the news in volatile war zones such as Bosnia, Chechnya, Africa, and the Middle East. War is brutal and indiscriminate, and journalists who cover it are routinely exposed to horrors most of us cannot even imagine. To make matters worse, they now must worry about being targeted because of the nature of their work. What is the psychological impact of a life spent immersed in conflict? What effect does their work have on their relationships with friends, spouses, and children? Dr. Anthony Feinstein, a world-renowned neuropyschiatrist, initiated the first-ever study of the effects of trauma on war journalists, interviewing dozens of the world's most accomplished correspondents. As the world descends into further conflict, this important book reveals the costs of living such dangerous lives.

Propaganda Techniques, Henry T. Conserva.
3 Henry T. Conserva. Propaganda Techniques
AuthorHouse 2003 1410704963 / 9781410704962 Paper back New Not issued 8.2 x 0.3 x 11 inches 
Propaganda Techniques is a book designed to illustrate several of the many ways politicians, advertising writers and countless promoters try to control our thoughts. The readers of this book will become more aware of the countless and subtle ways in which they are being manipulated every day. Although initially this book was intended for use by teachers and students, I soon realized it would be useful for people in many other fields. Journalists, business people, sales people, police, counselors, advertisers, politicians, medical personnel and lawyers are just a few of the groups that would find this book useful. General readers would also find it stimulating and provocative. The eighty-nine selected techniques explained in the book are divided into seven sections; Faulty Logic Diversion and Evasion Appealing to the Emotions Using Falsehoods and Trickery Playing on Human Behavioral Tendencies, Mental Capacities and Processes Speaking or Writing Styles Reason or Common Sense The exercises at the end of the book will help the reader gain practice in using the propaganda techniques. The first exercise is for simplification of a persuasive message. A complex message loses effectiveness because most people lack the stamina to wade through a great deal of information to get to the point. The exercise for simplification calls for writing a summary of the Declaration of Independence so that the document will be reduced to a few paragraphs while maintaining the perceived intent of the author. This work should be very useful to all those trying to develop critical thinking skills.

A Mighty Heart: The Brave Life and Death of My Husband Danny Pearl, Mariane Pearl & Sarah Crichton.
4 Mariane Pearl & Sarah Crichton. A Mighty Heart: The Brave Life and Death of My Husband Danny Pearl
New York: Scribner 2003 0743244427 / 9780743244428 1st Hard bound New New 6.3 x 1 x 9.2 inches Price clipped.
In A Mighty Heart, an astonishingly courageous woman tells the terrifying and unforgettable story of her husband's life and death. For five weeks the world watched and worried about Danny Pearl, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, kidnapped in Karachi, Pakistan. And then came the news of his shocking and brutal murder. Danny's reasons for being in Karachi, the complete story of his abduction, and the intense effort to find him are told here for the first time. Mariane and Danny Pearl were working in South Asia, as they had been elsewhere in the world, because they believed that good reporting is essential to our understanding of ethnic and religious conflict around the globe. They knew the risks inherent in the life they chose and took conscientious precautions. The courage of Danny and Mariane is extraordinary, yet we are dependent on brave journalists everywhere to produce news coverage that educates us. There are many mighty hearts in the Pearl story, many brave people who helped Mariane in her search for her abducted husband. This account is riveting, illuminating, and heartbreaking. We learn, through the urgent tracing of Danny's last movements, about the terrorists' methods, ideologies, and ruthless violence. As soon as Pearl was discovered missing, a global effort began to locate him and identify his captors -- a race against the clock that spanned the dangerous fissures of culture and politics and language that separate Islamic terrorists and America. Only one person can tell this story: Danny Pearl's wife, Mariane, for it was she who initiated and helped direct the urgent search for her husband and she who can paint a moving portrait of a marriage built on the ideals of truth, justice, and love. Intensely suspenseful despite the known outcome, uplifting at the last, A Mighty Heart is essential reading for our time.

Is This Your First War?: Travels Through the Post-9/11 Islamic World, Michae.l Petrou
5 Michae.l Petrou Is This Your First War?: Travels Through the Post-9/11 Islamic World
Toronto: Dundurn 2012 1459706463 / 9781459706460 Paper back New 6 x 0.5 x 8.9 inches 
A leading journalist travels through the hot spots of the Middle East and Central Asia, from Pakistan and Afghanistan to Syria and Egypt. Winner of the Ottawa Book Award for English Non-Fiction, 2013 Less than a year before 9/11, Michael Petrou trekked through al Qaeda’s backyard in the Tribal Areas of Pakistan. He was back in Central Asia within weeks of the attacks – this time as a reporter, slipping into Afghanistan as rockets and tracer bullets lit up the night sky, carrying notebooks, stolen blankets, and a satellite phone. In the decade that followed, Petrou has returned repeatedly to the greater Middle East, where political Islam, liberalism, ethnic and religious nationalism, and Western military intervention shape and batter the lives of those who live there. In the process, Petrou has established himself as one of Canada’s premier foreign correspondents. Petrou details a world in the midst of great turmoil and tells the stories of people who have long been held down by dictatorship and extremism and who are finally beginning to shake themselves free.

The Punishment of Virtue: Inside Afghanistan After the Taliban, Sarah Chayes.
7 Sarah Chayes. The Punishment of Virtue: Inside Afghanistan After the Taliban
New York: Penguin Press 2006 1594200963 / 9781594200960 1st Hard bound Very good (Like new except the pages have some highlighting) Like new 6.5 x 1.3 x 9.5 inches About half of the chapters have highlighted pages.
A National Public Radio reporter covering the last stand of the Taliban in their home base of Kandahar in Afghanistan's southern borderland, Sarah Chayes became deeply immersed in the unfolding drama of the attempt to rebuild a broken nation at the crossroads of the world's destiny. Her NPR tour up in early 2002, she left reporting to help turn the country's fortunes, accepting a job running a nonprofit founded by President Hamid Karzai's brother. With remarkable access to leading players in the postwar government, Chayes witnessed a tragic story unfold-the perverse turn of events whereby the U.S. government and armed forces allowed and abetted the return to power of corrupt militia commanders to the country, as well as the reinfiltration of bands of Taliban forces supported by U.S. ally Pakistan. In this gripping and dramatic account of her four years on the ground, working with Afghanis in the battle to restore their country to order and establish democracy, Chayes opens Americans' eyes to the sobering realities of this vital front in the war on terror. She forged unparalleled relationships with the Karzai family, tribal leaders, U.S. military and diplomatic brass, and such leading figures in the Kandahar government as the imposing and highly effective chief of police-an incorruptible supporter of the Karzai regime whose brutal assassination in June 2005 serves as the opening of the book. Chayes lived in an Afghan home, gaining rich insights into the country's culture and politics and researching the history of Afghanistan's legendary resistance to foreign interference. She takes us into meetings with Hamid Karzai and the corrupt Kandahar governor, Gul Agha Shirzai, into the homes of tribal elders and onto the U.S. military base. Unveiling the complexities and traumas of Afghanistan's postwar struggles, she reveals how the tribal strongmen who have regained power-after years of being displaced by the Taliban-have visited a renewed plague of corruption and violence on the Afghan people, under the complicit eyes of U.S. forces and officials. The story Chayes tells is a powerful, disturbing revelation of misguided U.S. policy and of the deeply entrenched traditions of tribal warlordism that have ruled Afghanistan through the centuries.
