Summary

'I would rather live in a country with newspapers and without a government, than in a country with a government but without newspapers' Thomas Jeffersom
This set traces the development of American journalism from its early beginnings in the seventeenth century up until 1940. Together the books outline the enormous changes which the industry underwent, from the production techniques to journalistic practices and changes in distribution methods. As a companion work to the previously published Chapters in the History of British Journalism this set is essential for all scholars of media and communication as well as cultural and social historians . The volumes are available individually, as two-volume sets, or as a whole set.
