Beyond the Killing Fields: War Writings - new book

ISBN: 9781597975056

ID: 978159797505

This first-ever anthology of the war reporting and commentary of Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Sydney Schanberg is drawn from more than four decades of reporting at home and abroad for the New York Times, Newsday, the Village Voice, and various magazines. The centerpiece of the collection is his signature work, “The Death and Life of Dith Pran,” which appeared in the New York Times Magazine. This became the foundation of Roland Joffé’s acclaimed film The Killing Fields (1984), which explored the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia during the late 1970s. Although Schanberg may be best known for his work on Cambodia, he also reported on the India-Pakistan war that ended Pakistan’s brutal attempt to crush the Bangladesh freedom movement in the 1970s. His striking coverage of the Vietnam conflict recounts Hanoi’s fierce offensive in 1972 that almost succeeded. Years later, citing official documents and other hard evidence that a large number of American POWs were never returned by Hanoi, Schanberg criticized the national press for ignoring these facts and called for Washington to release documents that had been covered up since 1973. As the media critic for the Village Voice, Schanberg offered a unique and searing viewpoint on Iraq, which he called America’s “strangest war.” His criticism of the Bush administration’s secrecy brings his war reportage into the present and presents a vigorous critique of what he considers a devious and destructive presidency. Beyond the Killing Fields is an important work by one of America’s foremost journalists. Sydney Schanberg, Books, History, Beyond the Killing Fields: War Writings Books>History, Potomac Books

[EAN: 9781597975056], Neubuch, [PU: Potomac Books Inc], History|Essays, Literary Criticism|African, BRAND NEW, Beyond the Killing Fields: War Writings, Sydney Schanberg, This first-ever anthology of the war reporting and commentary of Pulitzer Prize - winning journalist Sydney Schanberg is drawn from the hundreds of articles he has written for the "New York Times", "Newsday", "the Village Voice", and various magazines. The centerpiece of the collection is his signature work, "The Death and Life of Dith Pran" ("New York Times Magazine", January 1980). This article became the foundation of Roland Joffe's acclaimed film "The Killing Fields" (1984), which explored the Khmer Rouge - led genocide in Cambodia during the late 1970s. Although Schanberg won the Pulitzer Prize for his work in Cambodia, he also reported on Vietnam in the 1970s, revealing the weakness and corruption of the Saigon regime that Washington tried to prop up. A tenacious advocate for American POWs in Vietnam who were allegedly left behind when the war ended, Schanberg delves into his years-long reporting battle - using various documents that the mainstream press still chooses to ignore - indicating that American soldiers, likely in the hundreds, were left as prisoners in Vietnam and essentially abandoned by their country. When he became the media critic for the Village Voice, Schanberg offered a unique and searing viewpoint on the current war in Iraq, which he calls America's 'strangest war'. His criticism of the Bush administration's secrecy brings his war reportage into the present and presents a vigorous critique of what he considers a devious and destructive presidency.
