Although the Japanese press is one of the world's most advanced mass-media industries, at its very heart we can still find the anachronistic kisha-club (press club). First book in English to look in depth at the history and development of journalism in Japan as well as the current status of the kisha-club.
'This is a good introduction to the historical background of the newspaper industry.' - Ian Neary, Asian Affairs
