As world attention is renewed and refocused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the sixtieth anniversary of its seminal year of 1948, Marda Dunsky takes a close look at how more than two dozen major American print and broadcast outlets have reported the conflict in recent years. Beginning with the failed Camp David summit of July 2000 through the waning of the second Palestinian uprising in the summer of 2004, she finds that the media omit two key contextual elements: the significant impact that U.S. policy has had and continues to have on the trajectory of the conflict, and the way international law and consensus have addressed the key issues of Israeli settlement and annexation policies and Palestinian refugees. Dunsky explores how reports of the conflict routinely take on the contours of American policy and rarely challenge the premises of this "Washington consensus." She also examines the media's responses to allegations of biased coverage and gauges the effect that mainstream news reporting has on public opinion and U.S. foreign policy.

“A splendid book for journalists (new or old), fiction writers, essayists, and critics. But it could also be of great use to the intelligent common reader, the man or woman who wonders why it’s impossible to finish reading certain stories and why others carry the reader in a vivid rush to the end.” —Pete Hamill, author of A Drinking Life In the spirit of Strunk and White’s classic The Elements of Style, comes The Elements of Story, by Francis Flaherty, longtime story editor at The New York Times. A brilliant blend of memoir and how-to, The Elements of Story offers more than 50 principles that emphasize storytelling aspects rather than simply the mechanics of writing—a relentlessly entertaining, totally accessible writing guide for the novice and the professional alike.

August Vollmer was one of the most extraordinary men ever elected town marshal and appointed police chief in American history. It was Vollmer who brought policing out of its wholly corrupt and often brutal era of politics, by professionalizing not only his own Police Department in Berkeley, California, but police departments across the country and around the world. He was instrumental in the creation of the polygraph machine (lie detector), patrol car radio communication systems, and, as the Los Angeles Police Chief, the first crime lab in America. His greatest legacy, however, was the higher education program he created at UC Berkeley, which developed into the disciplines of criminal justice and criminology that are so widespread today. This riveting biography by Willard M. Oliver, ten years in the making, is the first single-volume, full-length biography of Marshal, Police Chief, and Professor August Vollmer. It is a profound work of both biography and history, and brings to life the man who forever changed American policing and police education, reaffirming Vollmer¿s rightful title as ¿The Father of American Policing.¿ Meticulously researched, the book draws upon newly discovered material, interviews, and writings of Vollmer¿s never before used, allowing Oliver to craft a richly detailed and fascinating narrative of Vollmer¿s life story. This magisterial portrait of one of policing¿s greatest leaders promises to reshape our understanding of both the man and his era and to rightfully restore August Vollmer as a household name.

Who Says? The Writer's Research is the first, brief research guide to focus on information literacy by teaching college students not only how to do research but also why research is important.Written for today's college student, Who Says? addresses contemporary research issues head on: What does it mean to conduct research in an age when we are bombarded by collaborative information, through online media and databases like Wikipedia? Who owns this information? How do we know? Asinformation circulates and changes, do the lines between audience and author blur? And how should these changes alter our expectations as readers - and as writers?By prompting students to think critically about matters of ownership and authority, Who Says? not only shows students how to find and incorporate credible sources in their writing, but also how to synthesize their own ideas with the ideas of others, which leads them to develop more confident andcompelling voices as writers. The first two chapters of Who Says? foreground this pressing need for information literacy by engaging students with the problem of research-writing in digital environments: "What is Information?: An Introduction," and "Says Who? The Writer's Authority, The Writer's Voice," engage students inbroader global conversations about the nature of research writing, while also addressing the writer's important role in academic conversations. To reinforce these larger topics, throughout every chapter in Who Says? there are also a number of practical, hands-on activities for students to workthrough, such as "Ideas Into Practice," including visuals, charts, checklists and exercises - all of which are designed to help students improve their writing and research while in class, and then help them transfer and adapt their writing knowledge to other college courses.
