The world's most comprehensive guide to international press freedom

Every day, journalists around the world face incredible risks from imprisonment and assassination to simply just "disappearing" all for the ethical practice of their profession. Caught between wars and uprisings and corrupt police and drug cartels, as well as increasingly oppressive censorship laws, they find themselves in some of the most dangerous situations imaginable. This is why the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) continues to create the annual edition of Attacks on the Press.

Started as a simple typewritten list over 25 years ago, this reliable resource has grown to become the definitive annual assessment of press freedoms globally. It provides analyses of media conditions, press freedom violations, and emerging threats to journalists in every corner of the world. * In this 2014 edition, you will find front-line reports and analytical essays by CPJ experts covering an array of topics of critical importance to journalists * Discusses how governments' capacity to store transactional data and the content of communications poses a unique threat to journalism in the digital age * Addresses the hope for more freedom in Iran and how the practical needs for communications technology may work in favor of a freer press * Examines the inability to solve journalist murders in areas such as Colombia and why eliminating witnesses has become an all too easy, and effective, method of stymying justice

In addition to being an invaluable source of timely information and guidance for media professionals, Attacks on the Press gives voice to journalists globally, providing them with a platform for direct advocacy with governments and a tool for influence at the UN, OAS, EU, AU, and other official bodies.
