Reporting the Wars was first published in 1957. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. News of the wars has always intrigued the public, from the time of the Napoleonic wars up to the present. In this period of the last century and a half, however, the character both of the public and of the news has changed. Mr. Mathews traces the history of war news coverage from John Bell, who, in 1794, was probably the first war correspondent, to Ernie Pyle of World War II fame. The account is colorful, since war correspondents are notably adventurous individuals, and it is significant for a basic understanding of history, since the reporting of war news has represented a constant struggle against the forces of censorship and propaganda. The book is illustrated with newspaper cartoons.

Despite an increase in the investigation of Hong Kong's drug problem, little has been published concerning the causes of continuous drug use or the recovery process experienced by chronic drug abusers. A Brighter Sidedocuments a pioneer longitudinal study of chronic drug abuse in Hong Kong, using an analytical framework to explore the protective and risk factors affecting relapse or abstinence from drugs. The findings have significant implications for theories of drug use and rehabilitation, especially in regards to the role of social capital, self-efficacy, short-term abstinence, and harm reduction in the road to recovery. The findings also have practical implications for services aimed at chronic drug abusers in Hong Kong and other Asian societies.
