- Professional and scholarly;
One of the key elements of this anthology is an effort to make journalism studies truly global and comparative. This book succeeds on multiple fronts: it provides a comprehensive analysis of the various and competing strands of research in journalism studies, empirically covers the vast geography of journalism practices and gives us a blueprint of how to analyze and understand such practices. I recommend this book for its scope and theoretical execution. It is a must read for all journalism scholars.
Matthew Powers, University of Washington:
This book provides a kaleidoscopic overview of journalism around the world. Its organization and execution provides a model for comparative research, and its findings raise important questions that are sure to orient future scholarship. Already well-regarded by colleagues, this publication solidifies the Worlds of Journalism project as a leading effort to make sense of the complex realities that journalists around the world confront today.
Henrik Örnebring, author of Newsworkers: A Comparative European Perspective:
This will be a touchstone work for decades to come. It is not an overstatement to say that this book is entirely unique; it’s special because of the detailed discussion of national and regional contexts. Worlds of Journalism contributes to the truly global and international perspective of journalism, avoiding normativity and emphasizing diversity using a unique and comprehensive dataset.
