journalism historians led by editor David Copeland have compiled
an eight-book series titled "The Greenwood Library of American
War Reporting." The series' 4,000 pages include insights into
history being reported as it was made, with more than 2,000 newspaper
and magazine articles and radio and television transcripts that
illuminate conflicts from the past 250 years.
illustrated series includes more than 500 engravings, front pages,
broadsides, sketches, cartoons and photographs. An extensive reader's
guide to documents places the annotated primary documents in thematic
groupings, making it simple to locate reports on specific battles,
topics, people and treaties. The conflicts are thoroughly covered,
from their underlying causes through the battles fought, homefront
issues, diplomatic initiatives and the aftermath of war. Each article
is annotated, the works are arranged chronologically by conflict
and the work is fully indexed.
A.J. Fletcher Professor in the School of Communications, was joined
by Elon colleagues Brad Hamm and Brooke Barnett in writing segments
of the series. Other scholars co-writing the series include Don
Shaw, Douglass Daniel, Russell Cook, Shannon Martin, John Coward,
W. Joseph Campbell, Amy Reynolds, Debra Reddin van Tuyll, Carol
