Reporting on the siege of Sarajevo provides the first in-depth account of coverage of the siege and the role journalists played in highlighting both the military and non-military aspects. The book is based on detailed primary and secondary material in English and Bosnian, as well as extensive interviews with international correspondents who reported the events in Sarajevo from the siege lines. It also includes previously unpublished images by co-author and award-winning photojournalist Paul Lowe.
