Summary 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.
