Editors under Fire by Harvey Tyson

$10.00

"Here is the story of a group of men and women who fought just to do their jobs. It is a story of endurance, not heroism; of doggedness, not adventurism. And yet there was much adventure, much excitement, much risk, and some sacrifice. There was even a fair measure of fun. The behind-the-news story answers many of the perennial questions concerning the press: its place in society, how it works, and who should own it. It is also the inside story of how some newspapers fought apartheid for more than 40 years. Sometimes they faltered, but at least they kept on trying - and survived to champion vital democratic values. And at least they opposed every new apartheid law in all those decades. It is the story of a struggle by a few people with differing beliefs who joined in the fight for rule of law, freedom of speech and an end to racism. Most of all, this book reflects the sweep of history as recorded by newspapers which were sometimes gagged, but always watching. Yet it is not as earnest as all that. It is a lively tale of a long battle, not yet won.".
