In 1986, he was sent to Johannesburg, where he followed black reporters who gathered information for white reporters during Apartheid.

A Complicated War: The Harrowing of Mozambique, published in 1992, grew out of a series of correspondences about the war-torn nation for the magazine, and Finnegan's own travels throughout that war-torn nation.

Out of Thin Air: The Brief Wonderful Life of Network News. Reuven Frank.
New York: Simon & Schuster, c1991. First Printing. Hardcover. 24 cm, 429 pages. Name and date written inside front board, minor staining to edges. Front board slightly weakened. Out of Thin Air is the story of the news behind the news. Studded with personal anecdotes, this is the inside story of the people and events that shaped the way TV reports the news. Frank gives readers a revealing look at how hit-or-miss the development of TV news was--and what a seat-of-the-pants adventure creating the news turned out to be. Agreeably sardonic reflections and recollections from a top broadcaster whose career in TV coincided with its emergence as a preeminent news medium. During his 38 globe-trotting years with the network, he wrote as well as produced a variety of news programs, including the Huntley-Brinkley Report, so-called instant specials, and a flock of prize-winning documentaries. In recounting the swift rise and subsequent fall of broadcast news in the context of his own experiences at NBC, Frank offers the equivalent of an anecdotal history of the post-WW II era. During its heyday, he argues, TV not only covered but also helped shape great events. With trashy infotainment shows now crowding the airwaves, the author concludes that TV has sold its birthright for a mess of pottage. A witty, illuminating memoir of the years when TV news was a hit-or-miss proposition.

Out of Thin Air: The Brief Wonderful Life of Network News. Reuven Frank.
New York: Simon & Schuster, c1991. First Printing. Hardcover. 24 cm, 429 pages. Name in ink on flyleaf. Agreeably sardonic reflections and recollections from a top broadcaster whose career in TV coincided with its emergence as a preeminent news medium. During his 38 globe-trotting years with the network, he wrote as well as produced a variety of news programs, including the Huntley-Brinkley Report, so-called instant specials, and a flock of prize-winning documentaries. In recounting the swift rise and subsequent fall of broadcast news in the context of his own experiences at NBC, Frank offers the equivalent of an anecdotal history of the post-WW II era. During its heyday, he argues, TV not only covered but also helped shape great events. With trashy infotainment shows now crowding the airwaves, the author concludes that TV has sold its birthright. Program content apart, he laments that latter-day producers forget that TV is a visual as well as narrative medium. Frank provides acerbic perspectives on colleagues, superiors, celebrities, rivals, and other notables. A witty, illuminating memoir of the years when TV news was a hit-or-miss proposition.

Longitudes and Attitudes; Exploring the World After September 11. Thomas L. Friedman.
New York: Farrar Straus Giroux, 2002. First edition. Stated. First printing [stated]. Hardcover. xi, [1], 383, [3] pages. Price clipped. Signed by author. Previous owner's name and address present on fep. Inscribed on half-title. Most of the essays in this collection, by the foreign affairs columnist for the New York Times,were written during Friedman's extensive travels throughout the Middle East and the world. Included is the never-before-published "Diary: Travels in a World Without Walls. " Longitudes and Attitudes contains the columns Friedman has published about the most momentous news story of our time, as well as a diary of his experiences and reactions during this period of crisis. As the author writes, the book is "not meant to be a comprehensive study of September 11 and all the factors that went into it. Rather, my hope is that it will constitute a 'word album' that captures and preserves the raw, unpolished, emotional and analytical responses that illustrate how I, and others, felt as we tried to grapple with September and its aftermath, as they were unfolding.
