This book is a profile of courage from the world of journalism. It highlights outstanding writers, editors and publishers who have endangered their careers, even their lives, to speak out for freedom of the press. The book contains profiles of selected winners of the John Peter Zenger Award for Freedom of the Press presented by the University of Arizona, including Katharine Graham, Seymour Hersh and Fred W. Friendly. This selection of stories offers a composite picture of the decades from the 1950s through the 1980s when First Amendment rights were under particularly dangerous attack. Contents:
