    Description"A holistic assessment of what journalism is all about, with plenty of enterprising interpretations of our trade - a word I prefer to 'profession'. I never met a more 'unprofessional' breed than that of my fellow hacks. This book will, I hope, lead our successors both to question and rebel more than we have." (Jon Snow, Channel 4 News). "Stands out in a crowded field." (The Guardian). "The bible of professional education in journalism...Every student of journalism should buy a copy." (THE (Times Higher Education)). This is the indispensable guide to the theory and practice of journalism, now updated with 25 per cent entirely new material. With its innovative text design, it creatively combines the experience and advice of practising journalists with the theories and insights from the academic study of journalism. This second edition thoroughly addresses the 'converged' nature of much 21st century journalism, with discussion and examples of online practice embedded throughout to represent the reality that online journalism is increasingly part of the job for all journalists. New and improved features include: more examples, more depth, and more interviews with journalists; a whole new chapter on telling stories through pictures, whether on TV or online; fresh new examples reflecting today's journalistic practice; and more insights from online journalists on blogging, the use of video and audio on the web, interactive maps and other ways of doing journalism online. This edition embraces the new without abandoning the fundamentals of what journalism is all about. It will continue to inspire students of journalism to reflect on everyday practice and connect it to academic debate.

    Review quote
    A holistic assessment of what journalism is all about, with plenty of enterprising interpretations of our trade - a word I prefer to "profession". I never met a more "unprofessional" breed than that of my fellow hacks. This book will, I hope, lead our successors both to question and rebel more than we have Jon Snow Channel 4 News The bible of professional education in journalism, now modernised and expanded in a timely second edition. It incorporates latest developments in multimedia convergence without losing any of the verve and intelligence that characterised the original. This book blends seamlessly the theoretical with the practical and encourages students to perceive the multidimensional challenges inherent in good, responsible reporting. The first edition stood head and shoulders above its competitors and this edition maintains the same high standard. The new section on storytelling through pictures is particularly valuable... Every student of journalism should buy a copy THE (Times Higher Education) This is a terrific text: original in its blend of theory and practice; always eminently readable; packed with references, anecdotes and ideas - and bang up to date. Above all, Tony Harcup conveys throughout his passion for responsible, reflective journalism. A must for all committed to improving the media - Professor Richard Keeble Professor of Journalism, University of Lincoln Novel, user-friendly layout... exhilarating and inspiring... seldom, if ever, have the practical and the theoretical been so well assimilated Free Press This excellent and easy-to-read book will help young journalists understand the real nature of today's media - and their role within in Jeremy Dear, NUJ, General Secretary Stands out in a crowded field The Guardian Harcup's book is designed to be read, and even enjoyed, by student and professor alike. He clearly takes the view that learning should be fun. That we should do what we can to impart knowledge and understanding and provide the tools for future development in a way that makes the students realise that it is important to be able develop professional skills and understanding; that this is just the first step on a long road to professional excellence and that they should learn to enjoy the journey. Harcup's light, bright style emphasises his journalistic background and years of experience both in the quality of the writing and in the quality of the advice Professor Chris Frost Ethical Space What this book continues to do very successfully is to engage in meaningful dialogue with professionals who are already well-versed in the realities of the industry, and it is thus essential reading for any journalism graduate who is about to enter the profession. For researchers in communications and linguistics who want to gain a better understanding of the intricacies of news media production, there is no better place to start than with this volume Helen Caple Discourse & Communication
