Encyclopedia of War Journalism


The Encyclopedia of War Journalism offers unique and historical in-depth coverage of individuals and their accomplishments, along with experienced insight at how war coverage is linked to public opinion. It will prove invaluable to students of war, history, journalism, political science, and public opinion.

This third edition of The Encyclopedia of War Journalism, 1807-2015 is designed to fill many of the existing gaps in the history of war journalism, as well as to update and enhance the first edition (Historical Dictionary of War Journalism, 1997). Much has changed since the last edition, including new wars, new technologies and the ubiquity of the World Wide Web/Internet as a news source. There are several new features in this new edition that will assist anyone wanting to learn more about war journalism.

This brand-new third edition contains:

  • Over 1,000 A-Z entries (200 more than the previous edition) covering reporters, photographers, and artists, along with significant events and terms related to war reporting. 
  • A Primary Documents section with 56 documents for added sources of research, including important newspaper articles, resignation letters, speeches, and correspondence.
  • Over 29 helpful Appendices, including lists of Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondents, films that portray war correspondents, and more.
  • A new Historical Timeline that presents a chronology of important events affecting war journalism (allowing the reader to see the profession in an historical context), a comprehensive Bibliography, and a cumulative Index

This updated edition is both a starting point and detailed research tool to explore the flow of information on the battlefield and the home front. With thorough coverage of war journalism around the world, this encyclopedia is a helpful addition to public, university, and high school library collections. No other source provides such insight into the history and current state of war journalism.
