From the Back Cover:

Almost entirely rewritten, Global Journalism addresses the most pertinent issues and problems in today's global media while providing an accurate overview of journalism throughout the world. This new, fully up-to-date edition recognizes the vast and rapid changes taking place in international journalism. Its two interlinking parts first survey the main issues confronting journalists, media organizations, audiences, and others in the media world, and then focus in on the media of eight major regions. Global Journalism has established itself over 20 years as a trusted authority on international media, and this edition brings it into the 21st century for a new generation of students, scholars, and media professionals.
