Kunda Dixit is a remarkable journalist innovator. He has been one of the visionary writers who have beeen able to make sense of development journalism and development communication theory and translate this into practice. A decade before this book, his Dateline.Earth: Journalism.as.if.the.planet.mattered (1996) became a sought after classic and should be in every South Pacific newsroom (but is actually in very few).
