Ross Collins is a communications professor at North Dakota State University, Fargo, N.D. He has a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in Britain. WWI and the press is one of his research interests.
His book “World War I: Primary Documents on Events from 1914 to 1919,” published by Greenwood, is an anthology of newspaper and magazine excerpts. It was praised by Scott Stephenson (Department of Military History, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College):
“The author has done a superb job of collecting representative articles and providing explanatory annotation that puts the period pieces in context. He supports his primary object–providing a source text in journalism history–by including a short series of study questions at the end of each chapter.”
