More than 4 weeks availability


Studying case study material drawn from Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East, this book provides an invaluable framework for understanding the development of journalism as a global phenomenon. Moving away from the view that journalism was an Anglo-American-European invention, "Journalism" compares and contrasts the development of the family of journalisms from the mid eighteenth century onwards, and their differing functions in given historical situations. The book explicitly links the development of journalism to the creation of global systems of trade and dominion, and resistance to those processes, and John Tulloch argues that journalism fulfils needs inherent in post-absolutist culture for recording and reflecting on experience.
