41 HAMMOND, WILLIAM M. Reporting Vietnam: Media And Military At War.
University Press Of Kansas, Lawrence: 1998. 0700609113 / 9780700609116 First Edition (Unstated). h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Good condition. 
Reporting Vietnam is an abridgment and updating of Hammond's massive two-volume work issued by the Government Printing Office. Based on classified and recently declassified government documents-including Nixon's national security files-as well as on extensive interviews and surveys of press war coverage, it tells how government and media first shared a common vision of American involvement in Vietnam. It then reveals how, as the war dragged on, upbeat government press releases were consistently challenged by journalists' reports from the field and finally how, as public sentiment shifted against the war,Presidents Johnson and Nixon each tried to manage the news media, sparking a heated exchange of recriminations. Includes an Index.

42 HAYDEN, JOSEPH R. Negotiating In The Press: American Journalism And Diplomacy, 1918-1919.
Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge and London: 2010. First Edition. Media and Public Affairs Series. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Negotiating in the Press offers a new interpretation of an otherwise dark moment in American journalism. Rather than emphasize the familiar story of lost journalistic freedom during World War I, Joseph R. Hayden describes the press's newfound power in the war's aftermath that seminal moment when journalists discovered their ability to help broker peace talks. He examines the role of the American press at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, looking at journalists' influence on the peace process and their relationship to heads of state and other delegation members. Challenging prevailing historical accounts that assume the press was peripheral to the quest for peace, Hayden demonstrates that journalists instead played an integral part in the talks, by serving as "public ambassadors." During the late 1910s, as World War I finally came to a close, American journalists and diplomats found themselves working in unlikely proximity, with correspondents occasionally performing diplomatic duties and diplomats sometimes courting publicity. The efforts of both groups to facilitate the peace talks at Versailles arose amidst the vision of a "new diplomacy," one characterized by openness, information sharing, and public accountability. Using evidence from memoirs, official records, and contemporary periodicals, Hayden reveals that participants in the Paris Peace Conference continually wrestled with ideas about the roles of the press and, through the press, the people. American journalists reported on an abundance of information in Paris, and negotiators could not resist the useful leverage that publicity provided. Peacemaking via publicity, a now-obscure dimension of progressive statecraft, provided a powerful ideological ethos. It hinted at dynamically altered roles for journalists and diplomats, offered hope for a world desperate for optimism and order, and, finally, suggested that the fruits of America's great age of reform might be shared with a Europe exhausted by war. The peace conference of 1919, Hayden demonstrates, marked a decisive stage in the history of American journalism, a coming of age for many news organizations. By detailing what journalists did before, during, and after the Paris talks, he tells us a great deal about how the negotiators and the Wilson administration worked throughout 1919. Ultimately, he provides a richer integrative view of peacemaking as a whole. An engaging analysis of diplomacy and the Fourth Estate, Negotiating in the Press offers a fascinating look at how leading nations democratized foreign policy a century ago and ushered in the dawn of public diplomacy. A former television news producer, Joseph R. Hayden teaches journalism at the University of Memphis. He is the author of two books on presidential-press relations: A Dubya in the Headlights: President George W. Bush and the Media and Covering Clinton: The President and the Press in the 1990s.

45 HINKS, JOHN; ARMSTRONG, CATHERINE & DAY, MATTHEW. Periodicals And Publishers: The Newspaper And Journal Trade, 1740-1914.
Oak Knoll Press, New Castle / The British Library, London: 2009. This is the Tenth Volume in the Print Network Series. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Contains eleven original contributions by scholars working on periodicals and newspapers in the British Isles, outside London. The essays focus on the period between 1740 and 1914, including some case studies of individual publishers and their experiences in the print market. This volume demonstrates the cultural and political significance of newspapers and periodicals and their producers. A key theme emerging from the essays is the range of relationships between producers and consumers of print who lived and worked in the provinces and their connections with London. Examination of the question of "provinciality" sheds considerable new light on the connections between book trade people in all parts of the British Isles. Dr. John Hinks is an Honorary Fellow at the Centre for Urban History, University of Leicester, where he is researching networks and communities in the British book trade. At the University of Birmingham he is an Honorary Research Fellow in English and a Visiting Lecturer in History, where he teaches early modern cultural history. Dr. Catherine Armstrong is lecturer in American History at Manchester Metropolitan University. Her research interests include the cultural connections between Britain and North America during the colonial period, especially the ways in which the American landscape is portrayed in print on both sides of the Atlantic. Dr. Matthew Day is Head of English at Bishop Grosseteste University College, Lincoln. He has research interests in print culture and early modern travel, and their intersection. He has published on censorship, paratexuality and the reception of early modern travel narratives in the eighteenth century.

46 HUBER, MONIKA WITH FISCHER, SUSANNE. News: The Televised Revolution.
Hirmer: 2014. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Protest. A word indissociable from the year 2011. In America, Occupy Wall Street protestors took up tented residence across the country to demonstrate against crony capitalism. Spurred by events in Tunisia, Egypt erupted in a people's revolution that ousted dictator Hosni Mubarak. Popular unrest has been brewing since the imposition of austerity measures in Greece and Spain. Meanwhile, the evening news continues to cover these events in one-and-a-half minute intervals accompanied by a flood of images, making these events difficult to assess. News represents an innovative collaboration between journalist Susanne Fischer and artist Monika Huber. A former reporter in Baghdad, Fischer has on-the-ground experience with revolutionary events and has brought together contributions that present a balanced view of the Arab Spring, including essays exploring freedom of the press and the role of the Internet in enabling revolution. Huber draws more broadly on events that have dominated television coverage in the past year, including Occupy Wall Street, the uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East, the earthquake and nuclear reactor accident in Japan, the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan, and the mass killings in Norway. Photographing and manipulating images from the news, she creates photo-art that casts a critical eye on the selection, presentation, and perception of these images. With many of the uprisings showing no signs of abating, the words and images in News together offer a fresh look at the issues that exceeds what we can find in traditional journalism. 150 color plates.

University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London: 2012. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Since its launch in 1999, Afterall, a journal of art, context, and enquiry, has offered in-depth considerations of the work of contemporary artists, along with essays that broaden the context in which to understand it. Published three times a year, Afterall also features essays on art history and critical theory. Issue 30 looks at artists whose practices respond to specific local contexts in different ways, from American artist Jimmie Durham's installations about US politics and civil rights to Israeli artist Yael Bartana's films about contemporary Europe. Texts focusing on specific projects in Spain, the UK and Italy focus on the relationship of the economy to the local site, whether through the effects on art education of the housing boom, the politics of local commissioning processes or the relationship of urban art centers to their neighborhoods. Other artists' groups featured in this issue are the collectives Archivo Caminante from Argentina and Ruang Rupa from Indonesia.
