When the Wall Street Journal reporters 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 worlds most accomplished correspondents. As the world descends into further conflict, this important book reveals the costs of living such dangerous lives.
