Providing a truly comprehensive overview of international journalism and global news reporting in the digital age, this new introductory textbook surveys the full variety of contexts that journalists around the world operate in; the challenges and pressures they face; their journalistic practices; and the wider theoretical and social implications. Analysing key scholarship in the field, Vera Slavtcheva-Petkova and Michael Bromley explore not just journalism as a single entity, but equally the multiple cultures which host journalism and the variety of journalisms which exist across the world.

Clear and accessible, this is an ideal companion for undergraduate and postgraduate students of international and global journalism on Journalism or Media and Communication Studies degrees.

Global Journalism is an excellent introduction to the world of journalism today. It looks at global journalism from a number of useful angles. It offers important historical context, explains the way that economics, politics and the structure of ownership affect the kind of journalism we get in different parts of the world. Its analysis is thorough, fair and tough. (Alexander Stille, Columbia University, USA)
