Journalism Summary

Journalism: Principles and Practice by Tony Harcup

"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

"Stands out in a crowded field."
The Guardian

"The bible of professional education in journalism... Every student of journalism should buy a copy."
- THE (Times Higher Education)

This is the indispensable guide to the theory and practice of journalism, now updated with 25% entirely new material. With its innovative text design, it creatively combines the experience and advice of practising journalists with the theories and insights from the academic study of journalism.

This second edition thoroughly addresses the `converged' nature of much 21st century journalism, with discussion and examples of online practice embedded throughout to represent the reality that online journalism is increasingly part of the job for all journalists.

New and improved features include:

  • More examples, more depth, and more interviews with journalists.
  • A whole new chapter on telling stories through pictures, whether on TV or online.
  • Fresh new examples reflecting today's journalistic practice.
  • More insights from online journalists on blogging, the use of video and audio on the web, interactive maps and other ways of doing journalism online.

This edition embraces the new without abandoning the fundamentals of what journalism is all about. It will continue to inspire students of journalism to reflect on everyday practice and connect it to academic debate.

The bible of professional education in journalism, now modernised and expanded in a timely second edition. It incorporates latest developments in multimedia convergence without losing any of the verve and intelligence that characterised the original. This book blends seamlessly the theoretical with the practical and encourages students to perceive the multidimensional challenges inherent in good, responsible reporting. The first edition stood head and shoulders above its competitors and this edition maintains the same high standard. The new section on storytelling through pictures is particularly valuable.... Every student of journalism should buy a copy

Stands out in a crowded field
The Guardian

Harcup's book is designed to be read, and even enjoyed, by student and professor alike. He clearly takes the view that learning should be fun. That we should do what we can to impart knowledge and understanding and provide the tools for future development in a way that makes the students realise that it is important to be able develop professional skills and understanding; that this is just the first step on a long road to professional excellence and that they should learn to enjoy the journey. Harcup's light, bright style emphasises his journalistic background and years of experience both in the quality of the writing and in the quality of the advice
Professor Chris Frost

Ethical Space

What this book continues to do very successfully is to engage in meaningful dialogue with professionals who are already well-versed in the realities of the industry, and it is thus essential reading for any journalism graduate who is about to enter the profession. For researchers in communications and linguistics who want to gain a better understanding of the intricacies of news media production, there is no better place to start than with this volume
