Editorial Reviews


The most thoughtful book in years about the intellectual assumptions behind investigative journalism.... It's hard to imagine any journalist who wouldn't do investigative reporting more thoughtfully, or any citizen who wouldn't read it more insightfully, after this two-teacher seminar.

(Carlin Romano The Philadelphia Inquirer)


The authors let readers in on lots of craft talk-how investigative journalism is conducted, why it happens, what impact it has on the larger society. They demonstrate that investigative journalists simultaneously validate and shake up the prevailing social order.

(Steve Weinberg, Author of The Reporter's Handbook: An Investigator's Guide to Documents and Techniques)

At a time when a revolution in communications technology and the economics by which it is organized is radically changing journalism and causing journalists to question their traditional standards and values, along come James Ettema and Theodore Glasser to begin a conversation that could lead to a new rhetoric for a powerful new journalism of the future. Carefully reported, analyzed, and argued, this is an important book that has to be read by anyone concerned for a self governing society and the future of a journalism which truly serves the public interest.

(Bill Kovach, Curator, Nieman Foundation at Harvard University)

The most important book about journalism to be published in years. Journalists, students, and teachers can here experience more intensely the triumphs of investigative reporting and the moral ambiguities of the craft. This book marries the stylistic grace of good journalism with the penetrating insight of sound scholarship. It pays journalism the highest compliment by taking it seriously, and is sure to be a touchstone volume in its field.

(James W. Carey, Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia University)

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more
