Knight Center publishes new e-book on coverage of border violence and drug trafficking

The latest e-book from the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas now is available to download for free. The book, Journalism in Times of Threats, Censorship and Violence, is a report from the seminar “Cross-border Coverage of U.S.–Mexico Drug Trafficking” held March 26-27, 2010, at the University of Texas at Austin.

The book is available in both English and Spanish at the Knight Center's digital library. This is the Knight Center's seventh e-book.

Twenty-six reporters from Mexico and the United States gathered in March for the Knight Center workshop,
a "Specialized Reporting Institute" (SRI) financed by the McCormick Foundation.

The book, a summary of the participants' experiences covering drug trafficking and violence on the U.S./Mexican border, was compiled by Chilean journalist Mónica Medel, the workshop’s rapporteur and a graduate student at the University of Texas.

I'm curious to check out that book now. Journalism in Times of Threats, Censorship and Violence seems like something I could stay focused on reading.
