«Foreign correspondents brought the horror of the siege of Sarajevo to the world. In this deftly written volume, Kenneth Morrison and Paul Lowe tell the story of how they did it, through an examination of the daily life of reporters, discussion of the city’s broadcast infrastructure and key critical developments that affected their work. This masterfully documented book makes use of extensive interviews with foreign reporters, local translators, stringers, fixers, and engineers, as well as archival research conducted over many years. In an era of fake news and ‘alternative facts’, it is essential reading for media practitioners who want to understand this critical era of journalism and will be equally vital for both scholars of the region and general readers interested in the longest siege in modern history.»

«Kenneth Morrison and Paul Lowe break new ground with this rich and compelling account of the challenges of war reporting during the four year siege of Sarajevo. Capturing the tensions and tragedy of the period, this study also prompts reflection on the nature of war reporting - the ethical dilemmas and lasting trauma journalists grappled with in their struggle to bring the desperate situation within the city to the attention of the wider world.»

Elizabeth Roberts, Independent Scholar/University of Oxford, UK
