Editorial Reviews


"...a deft tour through the history of news. From oral news systems to handwritten bulletins to the Gutenberg press to news ballads to newspapers to radio and television, he doesn't miss a beat.... He has given the news and those who disseminate it a degree of legitimacy previously unsuspected by or of them, and he makes a powerful case for treating "the news" as seriously as any other aspect of common human interest and endeavor. "A History of News" is in all respects first-rate, and original, work."
                                    -- Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post

"...a lively and original historical introduction...There is a particularly useful account of the development of reporting...; and at every stage Mr. Stephens's wide knowledge of his subject furnishes him with striking facts and analogies."
                                   -- John Gross, New York Times
