CPJ and the World

The publication in March of CPJ's Attacks on the Press in 1996 was the culmination of months of intense preparation by CPJ staff, investigating and verifying more than 1,000 documented cases of violations of press freedom worldwide. The 376-page volume, edited by Publications Director Alice Chasan, is the longest and most comprehensive of CPJ's annual studies to date, with overviews of five world regions and assessments of more than 100 countries. Eight special reports illuminate subjects as diverse as the CIA's new legal right to use U.S. journalists in covert operations, the role of Ireland's arcane libel laws in reporter Veronica Guerin's death, the restrictions on Vietnam's independent press, and the dangers that Russian journalists face.
