The role played by mass print media and especially field correspondents during the Spanish American war was adventurous, celebrated, dangerous and extremely ambiguous. Brown examines the complex relationship between media and armed conflict and the strange case of the soldier/journalist that this war exemplifies. A very good copy, spine faded, covers spotted, in dust jacket with worn edges.
