Journalism Summary

Journalism: Principles and Practice by Tony Harcup

A classic text of journalism education that goes beyond the basics to ask the questions that anyone thinking of becoming a journalist really needs to consider. An ethical, entertaining and enduring read - highly recommended.
- Michelle Stanistreet, General Secretary, National Union of Journalists

This is the one book you need to guide you through university and into your career in journalism.

It features stories and tips from a diverse range of journalists, including Ayshah Tull and Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News; Emma Youle of HuffPost; Andrew Norfolk of the Times; and the Mirror's Nada Farhoud.

Covering everything from print to podcasting, it will equip you with the skills and understanding you need to become a successful and ethical journalist.

Tony Harcup's Journalism: Principles and Practice is simply the best guide there is to studying and practising journalism today.

A holistic assessment of what journalism is all about, with plenty of enterprising interpretations of our trade - a word I prefer to 'profession'. I never met a more 'unprofessional' breed than that of my fellow hacks. This book will, I hope, lead our successors both to question and rebel more than we have.
- Jon Snow, Channel 4 News
