Key Readings in Journalism brings together over thirty essential writings that every student of journalism should know. Designed as a primary text for undergraduate students, each reading was carefully chosen in response to extensive surveys from educators reflecting on the needs of today’s journalism classroom. Readings range from critical and historical studies of journalism, such as Walter Lippmann’s Public Opinion and Michael Schudson’s Discovering the News, to examples of classic reporting, such as Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward’s All the President’s Men. They are supplemented by additional readings to broaden the volume’s scope in every dimension, including gender, race, and nationality. The volume is arranged thematically to enable students to think deeply and broadly about journalism—its development, its practice, its key individuals and institutions, its social impact, and its future—and section introductions and headnotes precede each reading to provide context and key points for discussion.

Review

"Key Readings in Journalism truly constitutes a greatest hits in the field of journalism studies. All the classics, past and present, are here. This book belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who thinks about or studies the news. It is ideal for classroom use."

—Robert W. McChesney, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"Key Readings in Journalism's selections cumulatively answer the important questions of why journalism is necessary and important, why it must be of the highest possible quality, and what the dangers may be when it isn't. Its selections will inspire scholars at all levels to want to read more of the excerpted works, and to seriously think about what journalism's other key readings might be."

—Dane S. Claussen, Editor, Journalism & Mass Communication Educator
