The Global Journalist in the 21st Century systematically assesses the demographics, education, socialization, professional attitudes and working conditions of journalists in various countries around the world. This book updates the original Global Journalist (1998) volume with new data, adding more than a dozen countries, and provides material on comparative research about journalists that will be useful to those interested in doing their own studies.
The editors put together this collection working under the assumption that journalists’ backgrounds, working conditions and ideas are related to what is reported (and how it is covered) in the various news media round the world, in spite of societal and organizational constraints, and that this news coverage matters in terms of world public opinion and policies. Outstanding features include:
As the most comprehensive and reliable source on journalists around the world, The Global Journalist will serve as the primary source for evaluating the state of journalism. As such, it promises to become a standard reference among journalism, media, and communication students and researchers around the world.

'Essential...This volume offers a profile of who journalists are, and where and how they emerge and function. It addresses issues regarding job satisfaction, perceived autonomy, roles, and the ethics of reporting methods. The single source of agreement worldwide seems to be that journalists will not reveal news sources when confidentiality has been promised. This volume presents data and information not available elsewhere, making it a necessary purchase for journalism programs.' – CHOICE magazine, G. R. Walden, Ohio State University, USA
