Understanding Journalism Reviews

'Because the book is written by an intelligent, theorising practitioner students of both practical "journalism" and theoretical "media studies" should find it invaluable as a reference work, a first-aid kit and a revision tool.' - Harriet Gilbert, City University

'This book is essential reading for anybody entering the profession of journalism - and for those already in it!' - Peter Geraghty

'John Wilson has created a journalist's ethical dictionary that reads like a novel. It holds the interest when held at length, and contains pithy definitions and sensitive explanations of a wide range of key journalistic topics. It is a book for all journalism students who need to be prepared for the dilemmas of newsroom and editorial life.' - Paul Needle, City University
