Editorial Reviews

Book Description

This history of environmental journalism looks at how the practice now defines issues and sets the public agenda evolving from a tradition that includes the works of authors such as Pliny the Elder, John Muir, and Rachel Carson. It makes the case that the relationship between the media and its audience is an ongoing conversation between society and the media on what matters and what should matter.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By William Dietrich on September 23, 2008
Format: Paperback
Journalism professor Mark Neuzil's history of environmental journalism is comprehensive and entertainingly written, combining an unusually inclusive look at the field's roots with interesting historical anecdotes and examples. A hunter himself, Neuzil fills a gap by noting the importance of hook-and-bullet and farm writing - as well as the more classic nature writing - in the development of the field. There's a provocative chapter on journalists as prophets, and the book ranges from Izaak Walton to the website Grist. This is not a "how-to" book on the craft of environmental journalism but it is an excellent overview of its development.

This is a tremendous resource. And no one other than Mark Neuzil could have written this. He has the credibility, experience and expertise to cover the topic well and gather sufficient information and contacts. All journalists, environmentalists and academics need to read this. Very well done.
