9780745671611: Journalism and the Public (Key Concepts in Journalism)

The public, James Carey famously wrote, is the �god-term� of journalism, �the term without which the entire enterprise fails to make sense.� In the last thirty years, scholars have made great progress in understanding just what this means.

In this much-needed new book, leading scholar David Ryfe takes readers on a journey through the literature that explores this most important of relationships. He discusses how and why journalism first emerged in the United States, and why journalism everywhere shares a family resemblance but is nowhere practised in precisely the same way. He goes on to explain why journalists have such difficulty talking about the business aspects of their profession, and explores the boundaries of the field�s collective imagination. Ryfe looks at the nature of change in journalism, providing sketches of its possible futures. Ultimately, he argues that the public is a keyword for journalism because it is impossible to understand the practice without it.

This rich and insightful guide will prove indispensable for anyone interested in understanding the practice of journalism.

About the Author:

David M. Ryfe is Professor and Director of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Iowa.

Review:

"In this brilliant and wide-ranging book, David Ryfe demonstrates how journalism is deeply shaped by its relations to other institutions of public life. Journalism and the Public is an important contribution to the international comparative study of news."
Rodney Benson, New York University

"A picture of the public and its relationship with journalism has held us captive. In this excellent book, David Ryfe sets us free. Writing with clarity and verve, he shows that while the relationship varies in response to pressures from state, market, and civil society, a connection between journalism and the public is everywhere at the heart of the profession and what it aims to accomplish."
Rasmus Kleis Nielsen, University of Oxford
