Abstract

Key Readings in Journalism brings together over thirty essential writings that every student of journalism should know. Designed as a primary text for undergraduate students, each reading was carefully chosen in response to extensive surveys from educators reflecting on the needs of today's journalism classroom. Readings range from critical and historical studies of journalism, such as Walter Lippmann's Public Opinion and Michael Schudson's Discovering the News, to examples of classic reporting, such as Robert Woodward and Carl Bernstein's All the President's Men. They are supplemented by additional readings to broaden the volume's scope on every dimension, including gender, race, and nationality. The volume is arranged thematically to enable students to think deeply and broadly about journalism---its development, its practice, its key individuals and institutions, its social impact, and its future---and section introductions and headnotes precede each reading to provide context and key points for discussion.
