This fascinating book describes the details of three real case studies of investigative journalism about human rights. Stories include journalists exposing slave labor used in other countries for the sea food we buy, child labor in Mexico's coffee fields, and fraud by doctors to deny coal miners their health benefits. Readers will gain an understanding of the research process, the ethical standards journalists must follow, and the perseverance required to confirm a story and affect change. Teacher’s guide available.
