Description

News on a Knife-Edge is a readable account of a London-based news feature agency, Gemini News Service, which is governed by an international foundation. Started by Derek Ingram, a former Deputy Editor of the London Daily Mail and a campaigner for the Commonwealth, Gemini is regarded as a development tool in its own right.
News on a Knife-Edge contains chapters on Gemini's history, the developing and new world information order, journalists and artists, the Commonwealth, and Gemini's educational work, plus 31 articles originally put out by the service.
