This second volume in the series Institutions of American Democracy takes a close look at the role of the press in a democracy through a collection of essays by journalists and scholars. The essays examine the orientation of the press in a democracy, the function of the press in democracies, the government and the press, the structure and nature of the American press, and the future of news and journalism. The collection is aimed at correcting mistaken impressions about American media, inside and outside of the U.S., that mainstream conventional journalism is the only "legitimate" journalism; that journalism as practiced currently in the U.S. is the only valid model; and that American journalism is not affected by journalistic trends and developments in other nations. The essayists consider the role of the press as watchdog in a democracy, the importance of advocacy journalism in protecting the rights of minorities, alternative models for news delivery, the growing trend toward profit-oriented media monopolies, and the function of the press in wartime.

Since the 1950s, writing about popular music has become a staple of popular culture.Rolling Stone,Vibe, andThe Sourceas well as music columns in major newspapers target consumers who take their music seriously. Rapidly proliferating fanzines, websites, and internet discussion groups enable virtually anyone to engage in popular music criticism. Until now, however, no one has tackled popular music criticism as a genre of journalism with a particular history and evolution.Pop Music and the Presslooks at the major publications and journalists who have shaped this criticism, influencing the public's ideas about the music's significance and quality. The contributors to the volume include academics and journalists; several wear both hats, and some are musicians as well. Their essays illuminate the complex relationships of the music industry, print media, critical practice, and rock culture. (And they repeatedly dispel the notion that being a journalist is the next best thing to being a rock star.) Author note:Steve Jonesis Professor of Communication at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Among his books areCyberSociety: Computer-Mediated Communication and Community(editor) andRock Formation: Popular Music, Technology, and Mass Communication.

Many books have been written about the press and terrorism - particularly since September 11th - but this is the first press-focused exploration of their relationship. Drawing upon the history of terrorism, mass communication research, media theory, and journalism practice, this book examines how the press reports terrorism, and how that reporting varies depending on the medium and location. Examining the differences in reporting - globally and historically within different media and government systems - Terrorism and the Press provides insights for how, in the future, we can better navigate the relationship between the press, government, and audience when terrorists attack.
