The writers are a judicious mix of journalists, former journalists, journalism educators and media studies academics…the world of journalism is examined from a range of perspectives-mainly Indian, but also British and American…. The book covers a fairly wide range of perspectives…

Asian Journal of Communication

The editor successfully brings together a number of pieces that provide an overview on journalism practices entrenched in India. Its contribution to international journalism is valuable. This book should be particularly useful for international journalism academics, students of journalism.

Media Asia

Too focused on the current situation in India to make required reading, although still very valuable as an introduction to such a major global market and for comparisons between international markets and professional values and practices
