"One Day in July is the story of how John Tulloch happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is a narrative of his 7th of July: his recollections of what happened to him when the bomb exploded, his injuries, his recuperation during the months that followed. But it is also much more than that. John Tulloch is a professor of media and sociology and an expert on risk who has spent his career analysing how the media respond to major events. He has written books and papers on risk and everyday life. On 8 July his bloodied image was used by the majority of British newspapers. Over the coming days and weeks, time and again, he was interviewed and photographed and asked for comment. One paper used a 7 July picture of him to further a campaign with which John vehemently disagreed." "In addition to his work on media and risk, John has worked in Kosovo and assessed the impact of recent wars there and in Iraq on Western society. One Day in July draws on this and his other work and combines it with his own personal view of where we are today as a society at war, at home and abroad."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
