New chapters from John Turner, Nick Nuttall and Mark Hanna explore the specializms of local and national government reporting, investigative journalism and covering the courts.

The Newspapers Handbook includes:

  • interviews with journalists about their working practices
  • examples of writing from a range of recent publications
  • a guide to training and career opportunities
  • the importance of new technologies for the newspaper industry
  • an updated glossary of key terms and a revised bibliography.

The Newspapers Handbook encourages a critical approach to newspaper practice, and maintains its standing as a must-have student and professional resource.
