- We can order this
Beginning with the American Revolution and spanning over two hundred years of American journalism, A Narrative History of the American Press provides an overview of the events, institutions, and people who have shaped the press, from the creation of the First Amendment to today. Gregory A. Borchard's introductory text helps readers develop an understanding of the role of the press in both the U.S. and world history, and how American culture has shaped-and been shaped by-the role of journalism in everyday life. The text, along with a rich array of supplemental materials available online, provides students with the tools used by both reporters and historians to understand the present through the past, allowing readers to use the history of journalism as a lens for implementing their own storytelling, reporting, and critical analysis skills.

"The history of this country is the history of journalism. No one tells this story with more care, skill, and elegance than Gregory Borchard." -William McKeen, Boston University, USA
"At last: a Zenger-to-Twitter history of the American press, covering the vast subject from the perspective of journalists and their critics alike, with breathtakingly advancing technologies and the guarantees of the First Amendment as constant subtexts. Gregory Borchard, a leading scholar in this field, has done an outstanding job. This book should at once become-and remain-the standard reference on the subject." -Harold Holzer, Hunter College, USA
