Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

With a continued emphasis on interpretation and analysis, The Press and America remains the classic authority on the history of mass media in the United States. Recognizing that the development of America's journalism is inherently and integrally related to the cultural identity of its people, the heart of this book is an examination of American life and the American media.

The Press and America traces how major events in U.S. history were covered by reporters, editors and broadcasters and how other writers, advertisers and advocates influenced and continue to influence events in this country. While examining the media's influence on the course of events, this text also points out how events have determined the shape and character of the media. Within this framework, the authors relay the special story of the men and women of journalism and of the institutions and traditions they created. Expanded coverage of women in journalism, with coverage of Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Dorothy Thompson, Helen Thomas, Dorothy Day, Doris Fleischman, Gloria Steinem, and many other less known but important women. For anyone interested in the History of Journalism and Mass Media.

By Somewhat Satisfied on September 10, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I expected the product to be in a little better condition. The binding is somewhat frayed. The bottom front cover has a permanent triangular crease. The beginning chapters are excessively highlighted in yellow and underlined. Although many of the other chapters are not quite as distracting the person changed the highlighting to pink and blue. Since the paperback is somewhat thick it seems some of the pages are separating from the back binding especially from the begining to the middle sections. Overall the book is useable but if I want to sell it I would not feel good about giving it a good rating. I would rate it fair. One thing I would say is it beats paying the hardcover price and it will definetly serve it purpose for class.
So I will say thanks to the seller.

Best Regards,
Somewhat Satisfied
