Encyclopaedia of Journalism and Mass Communication, 6 Vols

By S. Kumar

Shubhi Publications, 2005. Hardcover. New. Today Journalism & Mass Communication has helped both people and the nation to compete within the global frame work. The role of the Media and the Mass Communication was to gather support from the people and inform them about the philosophy and objectives of the planned development and benefits accruing from them also about their responsibilities involved in the planned effort. Another very important responsibility of the media was to enthuse and involve people by removing ignorance and superstitions, by changing their negative attitudes and motivating them into purposeful action, all through persuasive and two-way communication. The author believes that despite large measure of success in mass communication, one big lesson that emerges out of the Indian scene of communication is to continuously rediscover the new goals and dimensions of mass communication and the media.

Censoring the Word

By Julian Petley

Seagull Books, 2007. First edition. Hardcover. New. Since the Enlightenment, freedom of expression has been regarded as one of the hallmarks of Western democratic societies. In the 20th Century, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights laid down the global principle that: ""everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers."" From the Enlightenment, the ideas of Milton, Locke, Mill and Jefferson developed into a classical paradigm of free speech which went largely unquestioned for over two hundred years. The modern globalised world has seen an end to such assumptions. The uproar and violence over both The Satanic Verses and the Danish Jyllands Posten cartoons raised the question of whether freedom of expression - from a global perspective, most specifically an Islamic one - is an outdated legacy of Western Enlightenment or a vital and necessary tradition which must be protected. Increasingly, the dominance of global media organisations and their responsibility to reporting the facts has led to calls for legislation for corporate freedom of expression. And, meanwhile, all pervasive, is the Internet, the new home for individual expression and the new home for the effective dissemination of religious and racial hatred and criminal sexual deviance. Censoring the Word asks if we now live in an age when freedom of expression can no longer be absolute. Printed Pages: 118. Censoring the WordJulian Petley9781905422548

The Special Correspondent

By Dilip Awasthi

Viva Books Private Limited, 2007. First edition. Paperback. New. Rarely have I come across performing teachers who will tell you that you can also do it. My bad luck. This book practically comes as my revenge towards those seniors who love watching sagging young faces so that their one-upmanship remains intact. Ravi Shankar’s sitar possesses the same octaves as any other similar instrument, or Sachin Tendulkar’s willow also conforms to the standard dimensions of the bats available in the market. If they can do it, why can’t you? Agreed that these are people with some extraordinary talent. The moot question however is whether each one of us has had a fair chance to explore our own latent talent. My answer is a big No. The reason is simple. Academics always present us with the mountain view of a molehill. My next question is: does Ravi Shankar consult a musical notation book to play a touching tune or Tendulkar grope through the cricketing copybook to sweet-time his shots? It comes to them fairly naturally and spontaneously. The only difference perhaps is that they have slogged to reach these heights. They have worked hard and risen through the ranks. It takes a while to reach a position and produce your best. This book will make the students of journalism and the budding journalists know and feel how it works outside a classroom situation. This revised and updated edition includes a new chapter ‘Headlining the Story’, covering an important area of news editing. Contents: Heading for the North East West South • Ignition Is On • Off to Work • Struturing the News Stories • The Art of Interviewing • Writing the Story • Headlining the Story • Packaging the Story • Hi-Tech Reporting • Ready Reckoner • Better Words and Expressions • Glossary of Newspaper Terms Printed Pages: 208.

Feature Writing, Second Edition

By N. Meera Raghavendra Rao

PHI Learning, 2012. 2nd edition. Softcover. New. If we ask the lay readers why they read newspapers, the obvious answer would be to get news. However, what keeps the newspaper endearing and, in a way, enduring are the longer stories about people behind the news, about the humorous everyday experiences we all have, or the closer look at someone and the unexpected surprises we get in the process. In short, we call these features. In this substantially revised book on Feature Writing, the author with her vast experience discusses various aspects of Feature Writing. She focuses on different types of features found in newspapers—Humour and Satire, Brights, Human Interest Features, Travel Features and News Features—and illustrates each of these. In addition, she provides a detailed description of Profiles, Interviews, and Online Features with examples, and gives a clear analysis of Feature Writing Techniques. Intended as a text for students offering courses in Journalism, this book would also be extremely useful for freelance writers, and anyone who has a flair for writing. What is New to THE SECOND Edition Includes two new chapters on Obituary and Tribute, and Sports and new sections such as Blogs and Professionalism in Journalism. Provides more illustrations culled from recent newspapers. Gives explanatory notes on some key words used in the book, and a section on Vocabulary. What the Reviewers Say In this delightful book on FW [Feature Writing], Meera Raghavendra Rao brings home to us that writing a story or a novel is one way of discovering sequence in experience, of stumbling upon cause and effect in the happenings of a writer’s own life. In my view Meera Raghavendra Rao’s book on FW is an exceptionally good and useful book not only for all students of Journalism but also for all writers interested in FW. —V. Sundaram, News Today The author has used instances from her career spanning more than two decades to illustrate various situations in this book. —Deccan Chronicle The book is a rather exhaustive guide on ways to tell a feature story. Among the other pluses is the Indianness permeating the book—most sample articles are home-brewn. —The Hindu, Metroplus Weekend Contents: Foreword • Preface Preface to the First Edition Chapter 1 Introduction to Journalism Chapter 2 Introduction to Features Chapter 3 Feature Writing Techniques Chapter 4 Writing Headlines and Importance of Photographs Chapter 5 Humour, Satire and Brights Chapter 6 Human Interest Features Chapter 7 Travel Features Chapter 8 News Features Chapter 9 Interviews and Profiles Chapter 10 Features Online and Blogs Chapter 11 Writing Features for Rural Page Chapter 12 Obituary and Tribute Features Chapter 13 Sports Features Afterword Further Reading Printed Pages: 212.

Newspaper Marketing in India: A Focus on Language Press

By NVR Jyoti Kumar

Anmol Publications Pvt. Ltd., 2003. Hardcover. New. Before Independence the Indian newspaper in general has a missionary role and saw itself as a powerful instrument in social reformation and freedom struggle. As of now, newspaper making in India is a multicrore business. The print medium, in recent years, has been making news rather than just reporting news. A newspaper business, after all, is to sell news to readers, then sell those readers to advertisers. The media mix in India is changing rapidly to the point that may newspapers are finding themselves an endangered species. The marketing warfare in the segment of Indian language dailies is no less riveting, and in some cases more mind-blowing. Inter and intramedia competition is one reason which is forcing newspapers to change and to react creatively. However, most of the books available on Newspapers Marketing are from the West. In this pioneering work, treatment of the subject is not too academic and is marked by a logical flow of topics. Current and real-world examples help the students and scholars of journalism, mass communication, advertising and marketing, besides media business practitioners. The study`s special focus is on the period since 1874, the time marketing started arriving to the Telugu newspaper scene. Printed Pages: 439.
