Contributors to The handbook of journalism studies should be congratulated. They have brought together a text that maps the "key theoretical and empirical traditions, fi elds of inquiry and scholarly debates in journalism studies". This is not a how-to-do journalism text. Rather, it is a scholarly reference book that provides an overarching schema for thinking about and investigating issues relating to journalism - past, present and future...It is an essential reference for journalism academics and students." -- Rhonda Breit, Australian Journalism Review 31 (1)
