Starred Review in Library Journal and Booklist


From Library Journal's 11/15/09:

"This six volume set covers every branch of journalism including print, broadcasat, and Internet journalism—and every trend, issue, and topic imaginable as it relates to the profession both in the United States and abroad. The first four volumes comprise 350 A -Z entries; the fifth volume is a valuable collection of key documents; and the sixth volume is an extensive annotated bibliography. Likely to become the definitive resource on the topic."



In volumes 1 through 4, both scholars and journalists contribute articles--persented in A to Z order--that span the field's wide spectrum of topics--from design, editing, advertising, and marketing to libel, censorship, First Amendment rights, and bias to digital manipulation, media hoaxes, political cartoonists, and secrecy and leaks. Also covered are recently emerging media such as podcasting, blogs, and chat rooms.


The last two volumes contain a range of valuable supplemental resources, including:

  • a thorough listing of journalism awards and prizes
  • a lengthy section on journalism freedom around the world
  • an annotated bibliography
  • key primary documents

The latter, edited by Glenn Lewis of CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and York College/CUNY, comprises dozens of primary documents involving codes of ethics, media and the law, and future changes in store for journalism education.
