Library Journal Review

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 (following Cultural Complexity and Transnational Connections), the lives of these journalists are also rife with danger, uncertainty, and personal sacrifice. Hannerz (Stockholm Univ.) 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. Furthermore, Hannerz gives an overview of the ways foreign correspondents and anthropologists can learn from one another and explains how their unique perspectives can teach the public about different cultures. Similar in scope to Stephen Hess's International News and Foreign Correspondents, this intriguing work is suitable primarily for academic libraries, especially those at journalism schools.-Donna Marie Smith, Palm Beach Cty.
