Overview

In a time of uncertainty and change in the newspaper industry, this book provides a concise and thorough overview of the field, looking back at newspapers' history, and forward to their future—and insisting there will be one. The authors, former journalists who now teach the subject, review the practices of the profession—from defining news to examining who owns newspapers, from newspapers' readership to the legal and ethical obligations of the field, to the new media environment. Written in an accessible style, this comprehensive text is well suited for a range of courses on newspapers.
