Foreign Correspondents Report From Africa: Pulitzer Prize Winning Articles and Pictures by Heinz-Dietrich Fischer

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting in African countries by American journalists has been a latecomer within the award category for international coverage. It took close to two decades after the establishment of the awards that reporting about the Italian-Ethiopian crisis was declared prize-worthy by the Pulitzer Prize jurors. During World War II, prizes were given for the coverage of the North African battlefields. Since the 1960s, inner-African conflicts, like unrest in the Congo, impressed the jurors, as well as writings on the Apartheid system in South Africa. This book contains a selection of the Pulitzer Prize-winning articles and photographs by news journalists in Africa.
