Reporting America at War by James Tobin

Book Description

Now available in paperback--as seen on PBS, America's greatest and most influential combat journalists tell their own harrowing and revealing stories about the experience of covering war. At the turning points of modern American history, from the beaches of Normandy to the jungles of Southeast Asia, war correspondents have served as our eyes and ears--sometimes even as our conscience. Courageous and controversial, they have captured war in all its brutality, folly, and drama. In the process, they have both reflected and altered America's sense of itself. In this unique book--which covers all of our nation's major conflicts from World War II to the present--personal tales intermingle with explorations of such critical issues as censorship, propaganda, press ethics, and the press's relationship with the Pentagon, both before and after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Together, they form a vivid and illuminating account that is essential reading for all who seek to understand the nature of war and how we learn about it.

Very Inappropriate Word by James Tobin Very Inappropriate Word, Hardback (August 2013)

Michael loves interesting words and is always on the lookout for words to collect. Then one day, he picks up a new word. A "bad" word. An "inappropriate" word. At least, that's what his friend says. But Michael kind of likes the word. He thinks he might try it out. At school. Bad idea. Full color.
