Winner, 2007 Tankard Award In March of 1827 the nation's first black newspaper appeared in New York City--to counter attacks on blacks by the city's other papers. From this signal event, The African American Newspaper traces the evolution of the black newspaper--and its ultimate decline--for more than 160 years until the end of the twentieth century. The book chronicles the growth of the black press into a powerful and effective national voice for African Americans during the period from 1910 to 1950--a period that proved critical to the formation and gathering strength of the civil rights movement that emerged so forcefully in the following decades. In particular, author Patrick S. Washburn explores how the Pittsburgh Courier and the Chicago Defender led the way as the two most influential black newspapers in U.S. history, effectively setting the stage for the civil rights movement's successes. Washburn also examines the numerous reasons for the enormous decline of black newspapers in influence and circulation in the decades immediately following World War II. His book documents as never before how the press's singular accomplishments provide a unique record of all areas of black history and a significant and shaping affect on the black experience in America.

When a case containing dismembered human remains surfaced in New York's East River in June of 1897, the publisher of the New York Journal - a young, devil-may-care millionaire named William Randolph Hearst - decided that his newspaper would scoop the city's police department by solving this heinous crime. Pulling out all the stops, Hearst launched more than a journalistic murder investigation; his newspaper's active intervention in the city's daily life, especially its underside, marked the birth of the Yellow Press. In a work that studies the rise and fall of this phenomenon, David R. Spencer documents the fierce competition that characterized yellow journalism, the social realities and trends that contributed to its success (and its ultimate demise), its accomplishments for good or ill, and its long-term legacy. Most notable among Hearst's competitors was New York City's The World, owned and managed by a European Jewish immigrant named Joseph Pulitzer. the scandal, corruption, and crime among the city's most influential citizens, and its most desperate inhabitants - a policy that made this journalism of action remarkably effective, not just as a commercial force, but also as an advocate for the city's poor and defenseless. Spencer shows how many of the innovations first introduced during this period - from investigative reporting to the use of color, entertainment news, and cartoons in papers - have had a lasting effect on journalism; and how media in our day reflects the Yellow Press's influence, but also its threatened irrelevance within the broader realities of contemporary society.

The Southern journalist was more likely to be a Romantic and an intellectual. The region's journalism was personal, colorful, and steeped in the classics. This title suggests that the South's journalism struck a literary pose closer to the older English press than to the democratic penny press or bourgeois magazines of the urban North.

The traditional approach to studying American photojournalism explains the what and who of photojournalism — what events and developments occurred, what notable images were taken, and who took them. Without neglecting those concerns, American Photojournalism emphasizes the why. It explains how contemporary photojournalism is grounded in three large ideas: the desire to witness and record historical events and important people, the belief in photography's power to advance social justice, and the embrace of a universal humanism. Cookman argues that contemporary photojournalists are strongly influenced by these three ideas, and that these ideas have become the central tenets of the profession.

"In The Coming of the Frontier Press, Barbara Cloud describes how newspaper publishers joined nineteenth-century Americans as they headed west to settle the frontier. Unable to make their fortunes in gold mining, these publishers returned to their first calling, newspapers. Focusing on the period from 1840 to 1890, Cloud argues that these early papers played a crucial role in civilizing the West, bringing spread-out communities together by providing a forum for political discourse and a source for community news, as well as stories from the East. Cloud investigates both the positive and negative influences of the frontier press, from the role of newspapers in railroad expansion to their excessive zeal to make room for settlers who would become their subscribers and their advertisers. Ultimately, few papers survived into the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, but Cloud rounds out this study with an analysis of those that did endure and a look at how the innovations in content and appearance of western news sheets would affect print media nationwide."--BOOK JACKET.
