War is grounded in the notion of triumph and defeat.
It is zero-sum.
- Bruce Jackson

I'm a schoolteacher and a writer.
So that's what I do.
- Bruce Jackson

The U.S.
government has in recent years fought what it termed wars against AIDs,
drug abuse, poverty, illiteracy and terrorism.
Each of those wars has budgets, legislation,
offices, officials, letterhead - everything necessary
in a bureaucracy to tell you something is real.
- Bruce Jackson

What is perhaps more worthy of note than how many tsunami dead we've seen,

that's when the silence comes closer;
that's when next isn't the least bit theoretical or abstract.
- Bruce Jackson

Television broadcasts have, in the main,
been more suggestive, less specific,
more distant in their images than the print press:
often you knew that lump was a dead body only because
a chattering reporter told you it was.

Which suggests something about media and war:
it's not just that events happen and the media documents and presents them.
There is a third element: what the public is ready to accept,
what the public wants to know.
- Bruce Jackson

You've gotten words about those American and Iraqi deaths and mutilations,
but precious few images.
- Bruce Jackson

of war or an element in war that is to be controlled.
- Bruce Jackson

The daily press, the immediate media,
is superb at synecdoche, at giving us a small thing
that stands for a much larger thing.
Reporters on the ground, embedded or otherwise,
can tell us about or send us pictures of what happened
in that place at that time among those people.
- Bruce Jackson

First, those images help us understand the general
and specific magnitude of disaster caused by the tsunami.
The huge outpouring of aid would not have happened without those images.
- Bruce Jackson

War is big and there are only so many reporters and
only so many places for their words and images to appear.
Choices are made constantly.
- Bruce Jackson

Filmmakers who use narrators pay a price for taking the easy way:
narrated films date far more quickly than films without narrators.
- Bruce Jackson

All too often, academic departments defend their territory
with the passion of cornered animals,
though with far less justification.
- Bruce Jackson

The key fact missed most often by social scientists
utilizing documentary films for data,
is this: documentary films are not found or reported things;
they're made things.

Technology has changed the way book publishing works,
as it has changed everything else in the world of media.
- Bruce Jackson

The fact that the Arctic, more than any other populated region of the world,
requires the collaboration of so many disciplines and
points of view to be understood at all,
is a benefit rather than a burden.
- Bruce Jackson

The media bring our wars home, but only rarely have
they been able to do it in complete freedom.
- Bruce Jackson

We entered the 20th century trying to deal with three
ideas purporting to define or describe or explain three spheres of action,
development and conflict: Darwin on the natural world,
Freud on the internal world, Marx on the economic world.
- Bruce Jackson

Perhaps the most important lesson of the New Social
Historians is that history belongs to those about whom
or whose documents survive.
- Bruce Jackson

They say the death of a parent puts you in time because
