 Journalism Studies
 As the world of politics and public affairs has gradually changed beyond recognition overthe past two decades, journalism too has been transformed. Yet the study of news and journalism often seems stuck with ideas and debates which have lost much of theircritical purchase. Journalism is at a crossroads: it needs to reaf 
rm core values andrediscover key activities, almost certainly in new forms, or it risks losing its distinctivecharacter as well as its commercial basis.
 Journalism Studies 
is a polemical textbook that rethinks the
eld of journalismstudies for the contemporary era. It is the politics, philosophy and economics of  journalism, presented as a logical reconstruction of its historical development. Thisbook offers a critical reassessment of conventional themes in the academic analysis of  journalism and sets out a positive proposal for what we should be studying.Organised around three central themes
ownership, objectivity and the public
 Journalism Studies 
addresses the contexts in which journalism is produced, practisedand disseminated. It outlines key issues and debates, reviewing established lines of critiquein relation to the state of contemporary journalism, then offers alternative ways of approaching these issues, seeking to reconceptualise them in order to suggest anagenda for change and development in both journalism studies and journalism itself.
 Journalism Studies 
advocates a mutually reinforcing approach to both the practiceand the study of journalism, exploring the current sense that journalism is in crisis andoffering a cool appraisal of the love
hate relationship between journalism and thescholarship which it frequently disowns. This is a concise and accessible introductionto contemporary journalism studies and will be highly useful to undergraduate andpostgraduate students on a range of journalism, media and communications courses.
