The ultimate insider’s account: living and working in China in a period of unprecedented economic and social upheaval It was just after midnight when China’s notorious secret police came knocking... A late-night visit to his Shanghai laneway house by China’s notorious secret police triggered a diplomatic storm which abruptly ended Michael Smith’s stint as one of Australia’s last foreign correspondents in China. After five days under consular protection, Smith was evacuated from a very different China to the country he first visited 25 years earlier. The visit marked a new twist in Australia’s 50-year diplomatic relationship with China which was now coming apart at the seams. But it also symbolised the authoritarianism creeping into every aspect of society under President Xi Jinping over the last three years. From Xinjiang’s re-education camps to the tear-gas filled streets of Hong Kong, Smith’s account of Xi Jinping’s China documents the country’s spectacular economic rise in the years leading up to the coronavirus outbreak. Through first-person accounts of life on the ground and interviews with friends as well as key players in Chinese society right up to the country’s richest man, The Last Correspondent explores what China’s rise to become the world’s newest superpower means for Australia and the rest of the world. PRAISE FOR THE LAST CORRESPONDENT ‘Michael Smith’s account of his time as a journalist in China makes for riveting reading. I learned so much about the texture of life as a foreign correspondent in this enormously complex, often mystifying and rapidly changing nation. For Australians who want to learn more about our giant neighbour but don’t want to pick up an academic tome, you couldn't do better than let Michael Smith take you on his kaleidoscopic journey of discovery.’ – Clive Hamilton, author of Silent Invasion ‘Smith’s account of his three turbulent years in China is a compelling, entertaining, racy read. He has a laser-like eye for the apposite anecdote drawing on extensive conversations with eyewitnesses living through these momentous historic events. Importantly, he lays bare the fibres of the twisted knot of bilateral relations between Australia and China.’ - Dr Geoff Raby, Australian Ambassador to China 2007–2011 ‘A lively, colourful and revealing book both about China and his own experience of the country, which is full both of excitement, admiration, adventure, horror, and, finally, an escape in the most frightening circumstances.’ – Richard McGregor, Lowy Institute ‘An important contribution to understanding China from a must-read China correspondent.’ – Melissa Roberts and Trevor Watson, co-editors of The Beijing Bureau​

When journalist Ella Franks is unmasked as a woman writing under a male pseudonym, she loses her job. But having risked everything to write, she refuses to be silenced and leaps at the chance to become a correspondent in war-torn France. Already entrenched in the thoroughly male arena of war reporting is feisty American photojournalist Danni Bradford. Together with her best friend and partner, Andy, she is determined to cover the events unfolding in Normandy. And to discover the whereabouts of Andy's flighty sister, Vogue model Chloe, who has followed a lover into the French Resistance. When trailblazing efforts turn to tragedy, Danni, Ella and Chloe are drawn together, and soon form a formidable team. Each woman is determined to follow her dreams 'no matter what', and to make her voice heard over the noise of war. Europe is a perilous place, with danger at every turn. They'll need to rely on each other if they are to get their stories back, and themselves out alive. Will the adventure and love they find be worth the journey of their lives?

The final battle of the War of 1812 results in a surprising victory for the outnumbered American defenders at the Rodriguez Canal east of New Orleans. The American command dispatches a patrol from its position in the Mississippi Delta. Its mission is to transport a group of severly wounded Scottish soldiers to a United States army field hospital for urgently needed medical care. The patrol, led by a free-black sergeant from the New Orleans militia, encounters problems along the trail. When the men are borne into an Acadian settlement in central Louisiana on one of the first experimental steam carriages, an irresistible tide of vengence and revenge is unleashed. The mystical forces conjured by a voodoo priestess and a Choctaw Indian chief reach even into the twentieth century. There they combine with modern conspiracy and murder to draw an attorney and newspaper reporter into the age-old enmity between the English and French. The deadly curse culminates on the same graveyard hill where it began.

For more than sixty years on the air, From Our Own Correspondent has been one of BBC Radio's flagship programmes. It takes listeners to parts of the world they've never been, and perhaps never would go in their lives: war zones, refugee camps, elite universities, space stations, spy academies and lions' dens of all kinds. Its reports introduce audiences to people they might never expect to meet: kingpins, revolutionaries, assassins and outcasts. The programme has always relied on the power of personal testimony, with its contributors not merely reporting the news, but also sharing what they found out along the way, and how it felt. Very often, it was their individual impressions and responses which made a dispatch vivid and memorable. From Our Own Correspondent prides itself on relaying the stories behind the headlines - that is to say, the deeper and longer currents which throw up the crashing waves of current events. "We need the sights, sounds and smells, as well as the facts and figures": that's how the production team often sums it up for potential writers. This is a place on air where the correspondents will often relate the unexpected: the day they attended a 40-course Chinese banquet, or swam with sharks, experienced zero gravity on a flight with Russian cosmonauts, went mud-wrestling in Turkey or ballroom dancing in Cameroon. With dispatches from every continent, this compilation of pieces written for From Our Own Correspondent brings together in one volume the most compelling stories of the past ten years. It is a perfect primer for understanding the modern world.

This first major collection of former Los Angeles Times reporter and columnist Ruben Salazar's writings, is a testament to his pioneering role in the Mexican American community, in journalism, and in the evolution of race relations in the U.S. Taken together, the articles serve as a documentary history of the Chicano Movement of the 1960s and of the changing perspective of the nation as a whole. Since his tragic death while covering the massive Chicano antiwar moratorium in Los Angeles on August 29, 1970, Ruben Salazar has become a legend in the Chicano community. As a reporter and later as a columnist for the Los Angeles Times, Salazar was the first journalist of Mexican American background to cross over into the mainstream English-language press. He wrote extensively on the Mexican American community and served as a foreign correspondent in Latin America and Vietnam. This first major collection of Salazar's writing is a testament to his pioneering role in the Mexican American community, in journalism, and in the evolution of race relations in the United States. Taken together, the articles serve as a documentary history of the Chicano Movement of the 1960s and of the changing perspective of the nation as a whole. Border Correspondent presents selections from each period of Salazar's career. The stories and columns document a growing frustration with the Kennedy administration, a young César Chávez beginning to organize farm workers, the Vietnam War, and conflict between police and community in East Los Angeles. One of the first to take investigative journalism into the streets and jails, Salazar's first-hand accounts of his experiences with drug users and police, ordinary people and criminals, make compelling reading. Mario García's introduction provides a biographical sketch of Salazar and situates him in the context of American journalism and Chicano history. This title is part of UC Press's Voices Revived program, which commemorates University of California Press’s mission to seek out and cultivate the brightest minds and give them voice, reach, and impact. Drawing on a backlist dating to 1893, Voices Revived makes high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship accessible once again using print-on-demand technology. This title was originally published in 1996.
