Description

In January 2002, the world watched in horror as photographs of Daniel Pearl with a gun to his head flashed across television screens. When the "Wall Street Journal" reporter's body was discovered a short time later, he joined the growing list of people who have lost their lives trying to cover the news in volatile war zones such as Bosnia, Chechnya, Africa, and the Middle East. War is brutal and indiscriminate, and journalists who cover it are routinely exposed to horrors most of us cannot even imagine. To make matters worse, they now must worry about being targeted because of the nature of their work.

What is the psychological impact of a life spent immersed in conflict? What effect does their work have on their relationships with friends, spouses, and children? Dr. Anthony Feinstein, a world-renowned neuropyschiatrist, initiated the first-ever study of the effects of trauma on war journalists, interviewing dozens of the world's most accomplished correspondents. As the world descends into further conflict, this important book reveals the costs of living such dangerous lives.

Editorial Review

Writing in an unblinking, occasionally textbook-like style, with an undertow of empathy — the book's tone resembles the unhurried probes of a psychiatrist in session with a patient — Dangerous Lives begins by outlining just how many psychological bullets a war correspondent must dodge.
