Formatted abstract
Ultimately, this book will be judged on its utility; the extent to which it meets the self-declared ambition of providing "an accessible, authoritative but preliminary guide to the central concepts informing the innovatory and burgeoning field of journalism studies" (p. xv). The attainment of this objective cannot be evaluated a priori by a single reviewer. If the text is found to be engaging, it will encourage repeated browsing. Otherwise, it may be used to search for specific assistance in coming to terms with the study of journalism; or just dipped into and then more or less discarded. Behind the project lies a mapping exercise of the nature and limits of the scholarship of journalism. It is by no means the first ofits kind, despite the relative novelty of journalism studies (Zelizer, 2004). Indeed, tracing the contours of journalism studies has become something of a current preoccupation. A review of this book, therefore, might usefully focus on both contextual and textual analysis.
