A must read story about a valuable news source,
This review is from: The Christian Science Monitor: Its History, Mission, and People (Kindle Edition)
I've been wired to the Christian Science Monitor for over sixty years, so I found much to relate to in this very fresh and readable story by Keith Collins. The Christian Science Monitor: Its History, Mission, and People I thought I knew all there was to know about the Monitor, but learned more about the fundamentals of the founder's plan and thinking for the paper than I had ever known or thought about before. That's from the context of having read every one ever published on the subject! Collins' thorough and balanced history is very readable even with all the solid research and interviews that never make it tedious. His narrative on what some call "Monitor journalism" and how it has evolved is most interesting. Readers of the various products of the Monitor today and those who are journalists or journalism students should glean much enlightenment from reading this fast moving story. The people involved over the years have made the Monitor what it is today and many back stories about them are shared. Collins finishes up with an insightful explanation of how the Monitor news organization is approaching its mission today.
