Overview

Newspapers provides a historical context for the books discussed in its readable essays and will be invaluable for anyone researching the history or role of newspapers in American life. Booklist

Professionals and scholars will find Newspapers: A Reference Guide useful. In it Schwarzlose supplies a thorough list of published works on newspaper topics. Adweek

This reference guide provides a broad-based and comprehensive introduction to the literature about and by newspapers, and views them as multi-faceted sociocultural phenomena. Following an introduction that outlines the history of American newspapers from their European antecedents to their forseeable future, the book examines the extensive literature on the history of newspapers in its regional and period dimensions, and biographical material on newspaper personalities, representing all levels and periods of journalists. This carefully constructed sourcebook includes an extensive discussion of the literature on the techniques and theories of producing newspapers, a section on the collections and anthologies of newspapers and their writers, and a thorough examination of the voluminous and rapidly changing literature on some of the critical issues facing newspapers today.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although Schwarzlose seems more knowledgeable when discussing the history of newspapering than when critiquing the profession, he has written a thoughtful and well-organized guide to the literature (mostly books) about American newspapers. This ambitious workcovering newspaper history, business, freedom of the press, technology, design, ethics, reporters, and reportingdiscusses materials published through the mid 1980s. The volume will not replace Eleanor Blum's Basic Books in the Mass Media (Univ. of Illinois Pr., 1980. 2d ed.) or Warren C. Price and Calder M. Pickett's An Annotated Journalism Bibliography, 1958-1968 (Univ. of Minnesota Pr., 1970), but is another solid attempt to harness this elusive literature. Jo Cates, Poynter Inst. for Media Studies Lib., St. Petersburg, Fla.
