*The first volume of its kind- there are no other handbooks focusing solely on American Journalism History.
*Avoids the strictly chronological approach adopted by many volumes looking at the history of journalism. Instead, by addressing segments of journalism over time, this companion considers developments not only in the context in which they occurred but also that in which they are being discussed, allowing for more structural analysis and criticism.
*Journalism History is taught at the master’s and/or doctoral level in more than 65 US universities. Although focusing on US Journalism, numerous chapters in this volume would be useful to researchers in other countries, particularly the chapter on theory, concepts and historiography.
