Many thanks Ana.
I know Diamond's book. Do you consider it investigative reporting? It's certainly a brilliant piece of investigation.
What work do we need to know from Mexico?

Mark,


From Latin America I would include "The Art of the Political Murder," by Francisco Goldman, on the murder of Bishop Juan Gerardi, Guatemala’s leading human rights activist, who was bludgeoned to death in 1998, two days after the presentation of a groundbreaking church-sponsored report implicating the military in the murders and disappearances of some two hundred thousand civilians.

Also Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "News of a Kidnapping," on the kidnapping, imprisonment, and eventual release of a handful of prominent journalists and others in Colombia in the early 1990s by the Medellin drug cartel, operated by the late Pablo Escobar. 

Also Anne Marie O'Connor "The Lady in Gold", a tale on the recovery of the portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, a Jewish Heiress and Gustav Klimt's muse and patron at  turn-of-the-century Vienna fate under Nazi rule, and the battle to recover it by survivors in the US and Canada.

Also Jared Diamond's Pulitzer Prize winning book, "Guns, Germs and Steel", which looks at how environmental factors had a decisive influence on human history.

Thanks Florence Serena and Lise!
BTW, I thought I knew a fair number of IJ books, but there are things here I didn't know before.

Hi Mark--

I highly recommend Brooke Kroeger's book which makes the case for the importance of undercover reporting!
"Undercover Reporting: The Truth About Deception," (2012)

(see below for more information about her book and the astonishing companion database of hundreds of undercover stories she created and made available at New York University)


Also:  REPORTING ON MODERN DAY SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
The Schuster Institute continues to work to create a resource for journalists who are covering or want to cover modern-day slavery and human trafficking,  one of the most significant human rights abuses in the world today--this site includes articles and book including an article by Brooke Kroeger.

NOTICE to all journalists:  Please send us examples of stories you think should be added to our collection!

SLAVERY NOW & THEN

Journalists Exposing Slavery---Today and in the Past
Undercover Reporting on Slavery From 1830s to Today



Brooke Kroeger, Senior Fellow at Brandeis University's Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism is a journalist, author of four books, and professor of journalism at the New York University (NYU) Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, where she directs its graduate Global and Joint Program Studies.
Her recent book, "Undercover Reporting: The Truth About Deception," (2012) mines the historical record to argue in favor of this often-maligned practice and has an extensive companion online database that goes back to the 1830s
.
Her previous books are the 1994 "Nellie Bly: Daredevil, Repor
ter, Feminist"; a second biography, "Fannie: The Talent for Success of Writer Fannie Hurst," published in 1999; and "Passing: When People Can’t Be Who They Are," published in 2003. Before becoming a freelance journalist, she served as UN Correspondent for Newsday and as a deputy metropolitan editor for New York Newsday. For United Press International in its Scripps Howard days, she had postings in Chicago, Brussels, London and Tel Aviv, where she was bureau chief for three years before returning to London to serve as the agency’s chief editor for its Europe, the Middle East and Africa division. At NYU, she served two terms, from 2005 to 2011, as chair and director of NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism. Twitter: @BrookeKroeger

Kroeger published a companion website for the book "Undercover Reporting." In collaboration with the New York University's Division of Libraries, she created a unique online database of hundreds of groundbreaking stories journalists produced while reporting undercover. The database, which dates from 1830 to the present.

It
reveals archival coverage of slavery and other important topics that likely could only have been fully reported from the vantage point of an undercover journalist. 

The NYU Digital Library Technology Services designed the software to assemble the stories and navigate the database and describes it as "a resource for scholars, researchers, and journalists that provides links or reproductions of both recent and long-buried journalistic investigations in all media, going back nearly two hundred years. The database is searchable by keyword, media outlet, date, or author, or can be browsed by series."


This is a treasure of resources that many journalists might be interested in.

Mark – When you get your list of great books together will you post a link to it?  Very interesting titles coming up in the discussion.

Mark -- if you haven't already , check out IRE's Educators Center, with sample syllabi, student resources, and more. You have to be a member to access some of the docs.

 

Also, you've probably seen the model curriculum on In-depth Journalism by Yvonne Chua for UNESCO. Best,

 

Dave

Hello all, I'm putting together a reading/watching list for an IJ curriculum to be used by mainly non-practitioner university professors. I'd like to know your fave works for it.

 

This may sound like a baroque notion, judging from the fact that there are very few works cited or required in the Ijec.org curricula list. The typical syllabus in the US is practice-based, just as the typical instructor is a practitioner. The reading list is drawn from current magazines or newspapers. But there isn't always a practitioner who can teach available, and there's a real advantage in knowing the history and benchmarks of what you're doing. So...

 

Works that inspired you, taught you something, set a standard for your own work. Book-length is fine; the first audience is professors, who can and do read. Docu films are welcome. Fiction is OK ("The Jungle" is indeed muckraking, and "Erin Brockovitch" is true to life). A capsule description is welcome. If I use your recommendation and didn't know it I will cite you by name as the source. Non-US works, theoretical works and historical works especially welcome. 

 

Best to all
