Abstract

What is Journalism? The Art and Politics of a rupture, by Chris Nash. London: Palgrave Macmillan. 2016. 247 pages. ISBN 978-1-137-39933-5

CHRIS NASH wrestles with ideas with rare intensity. His new book What is Journalism takes something so familiar to us, journalism, and peels back layer after layer of assumptions about what makes it singular and distinctive and what gives it parity with the other academic disciplines. More importantly though this book is a how-to guide for best-practice journalists and journalism academics looking for a lexicon to describe journalism work in a methodological way.
