The Newspapers Handbook is the essential guide to working as a newspaper journalist. It examines the ever-changing, everyday skills of newspaper reporting and explores the theoretical, ethical, moral and political dimensions of a journalist's job.
The Newspapers Handbook encourages a critical approach to newspaper practice.

About the Author:

Richard Keeble is director of undergraduate studies in the Department of Journalism at City University, London and a former editor of The Teacher. He is the author of Ethics for Journalists.


'The original Newspapers Handbook became an essential text for students of journalism, at the same time intelligent and practical. Since then journalism has become ever more popular as a career choice and ever more under the spotlight in terms of its own standards and the central role it plays in modern society. So the new edition is timely, with its highly relevant ethics and internet chapters, and the updating of content throughout. Keeble holds to the unfashionable view that journalism can be principled and influential, despite today's patterns of ownership and bitter competition. His book is an important contribution to tomorrow's journalistic standards.' - Peter Cole

'To my knowledge, there has never been a handbook for journalists quite like Richard Keeble's meticulous and loving work - I say loving because the author clearly has a passion for informed, honest and humane journalism. I predict, and hope, that many young journalists will be inspired by this book to practise just that.' - John Pilger
