The Foreign Press: A Survey of the World's Journalism.
Merrill, John C.; And Others
While there is certainly an abundance of excellent material concerning the world's press today, since World War II there has been an absence of any type of systematic synthesis of this information which might be used as a text or reference book by persons interested in the broad aspects of international communication. This book is intended to provide such a synthesis. Like the earlier ones, this edition deals chiefly with the newspaper press of the principal nations, but there is also some emphasis on the magazine press. New sections which differ from the 1964 edition are the overview of the U.S. press, which appears at the end of part one, and the in-depth survey of African nations which were colonies when the 1964 edition was compiled. This book is used to best advantage in courses dealing specifically with comparative press systems or as a supplemental text for several basic journalism and social science courses. The objectives of the book are to present a panoramic picture of the world's press systems and to provide students who desire a more intensive study with many sources for further investigation. (RB)
