This first-ever anthology of the war reporting and commentary of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sydney Schanberg is drawn from the hundreds of articles he has written for the New York Times, Newsday, the Village Voice, and various magazines. The centerpiece of the collection is his signature work, "The Death and Life of Dith Pran" (New York Times Magazine). This article became the foundation of Roland Joffé's acclaimed film The Killing Fields (1984), which explored the Khmer Rouge-led genocide in Cambodia during the late 1970s.

Most of the incessant, unwarranted fawning of the mainstream media over the late Sen. John McCain has finally passed. In light of near total virtual media black out of the subject, now would be a good time to read Schanberg's 2008 long-form investigative report on McCain's role in the POW/MIA controversy, which you can find in this book. The editor should have included more of Schanberg's work on this important subject. If your interest is piqued you can follow up with "An Enormous Crime The Definitive Account of American POWs Abandoned in Southeast Asia" by Bill Hendon.
