MEDIA REVIEWS
"Foreign News is a great contribution to the anthropology of work. The rich ethnographic material, the correspondents'' narratives and the pace of the text were excellent." -- Rob Johnston "Anthropology of Work Review"
"Foreign News works as a founding document for the anthropology of journalism. Hannerz raises important questions and suggests p[romising new avenues for further research. . . . [The work] provides not only an important window into a parallel profession, but also a mirror in which to examine our own methods and aims in an increasingly integrated, yet dangerously anarchic world."-Mrk Pedelty, Anthopological Quarterly -- Mark Pedelty "Anthropological Quarterly"
"The term foreign correspondent conjures up images of intrepid men and women leading adventurous and glamorous lives, traveling from one exotic locale to the next. Yet as Hannerz shows in his latest book, the lives of these journalists are also rife with danger, uncertainty, and personal sacrifice. Hannerz relies on his training in social anthropology to provide an in-depth study of the culture and social interactions of the correspondents. He details the complexities and nuances of living and working in a country other than one's own and studies his subjects' lifestyles and careers through interviews with them and through fieldwork in several of the major news regions, including the Middle East and Africa. His research also provides insights into such global issues of the day as terrorism."--Donna Marie Smith "Library Journal "
