In this new important book, Graldine Muhlmann provides acomparative history of the rise of modern journalism, from therevolution of the late nineteenth century, with its new concern forfacts, through to the present day. Her account is structured aroundthe tension between what she calls the unifying and decentringtendencies in modern journalism that is, the concern to givereaders a truth that is acceptable to all, on the one hand, and theconcern to resist dominant representations and give voice toalternative views, on the other.
She illustrates her account with a wide range of case studies, fromSverine, who covered the trial of Dreyfus in latenineteenth-century France, to the great Vietnam War reporters, Seymour M. Hersh and Michael Herr. In between are fascinating newreadings of famous figures like George Orwell and Norman Mailer aswell as some less well-known writers, such as the great Americanmuckraker, Lincoln Steffens, and the French crusading journalist, Albert Londres.
