Reissuing works originally published between 1963 and 2003, this set offers a wide-ranging selection of topics related to journalism and newspapers, from the operations of Fleet Street to cataloguing US newspapers. Topical volumes consider the press and racism, major disaster coverage and ethics while others present journalism methods from videotex to the internet. With particular current interest in the role of the media, several critical volumes here on its relation to politics and past practices will make this an intensely useful set covering history and issues which are still very prevalent.
