Book Description:

The significance of news and the institutions that produce it to American history

Widely acknowledged as one of our most insightful commentators on the history of journalism in the United States, David Paul Nord reveals how newspapers have intersected with religion, politics, reform, and urban life over nearly three centuries in a lively and wide-ranging discussion that shows journalism to be a vital component of community. In settings ranging from the religion-infused towns of colonial America to the rapidly expanding urban metropolises of the late nineteenth century, Nord explores the cultural work of the press and how ordinary readers use journalism to form community attachments and engage in civic life.

From the Inside Flap:

"David Paul Nord is our most versatile historian of American journalism. In Communities of Journalism, he reads newspapers through their communities and brilliantly reads readers through their newspapers in ways original, accessible, and eye-opening." -- Michael Schudson, author of The Power of News "These lucid essays are notably successful in connecting the history of journalism with social and cultural history; and when Nord turns to the history of reading, the data he has brought together and interpreted is of the highest importance." -- David D. Hall, author of Cultures of Print: Essays in the History of the Book
