"In twelve beautifully written essays, David Paul Nord examines journalism as a vital component of communities...Communities of Journalism is among the best thought-provoking books to be published in our field. It is a 'must ' for anyone who researches and teaches mass media history." -- Betty Houchin Winfield, Journalism History
The significance of news and the institutions that produce it to American history
Widely acknowledged as one of our most insightful commentators on the history of journalism in the United States, David Paul Nord reveals how newspapers have intersected with religion, politics, reform, and urban life over nearly three centuries in a lively and wide-ranging discussion that shows journalism to be a vital component of community. In settings ranging from the religion-infused towns of colonial America to the rapidly expanding urban metropolises of the late nineteenth century, Nord explores the cultural work of the press and how ordinary readers use journalism to form community attachments and engage in civic life.
