Journalism in Britain

A Historical Introduction


"What might have been a forbidding chronological slog is thoroughly enlivened by Conboy's thematic approach, shot through with passion and rigour in equal measure. This is a book written with a commitment to the importance of history for the present; it will undeniably cultivate the same commitment in its readers."
- Chris Atton, Edinburgh Napier University

"An authoritative and accessible introduction to the history of journalism. Excellent resource for undergraduates."
- Philip Dixon
, Southampton Solent University
