Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Exciting first-hand stories from the journalists make the book interesting and envelop the writers' wisdom with a depth of credibility unavailable to academic authors." (CHOICE, August 2009)

"[This book is] a pot-pourri, of clearly written contributions that sets out to chart why journalists should be on the front-line, what they should do when they get there, and the range of professional, institutional, economic and personal considerations that will face them, now and in the future.... It will fit in well at home in the libraries of proplr interested in their place in, and connection to, the world." (M/C Reviews, May 2009)
