Abstract:

"The Rise and Fall of the British Press takes an artful look at the past, present and immediate future of the printed newspaper. This is a comprehensive overview that contextualises the evolution of Britain's news consumption within significant social, cultural and political currents of the time. Chapters cover: - The impact of key technological developments; from the birth of print and the introduction of television, to the rise of the internet and digital media; - the ever-shifting power-play between political parties and the press; - the notion of the 'public sphere' and how newspapers have influenced it over the decades; - the role of news media during some of Europe's most significant historical events, such as the French Revolution, the First and Second World Wars and the Suez crisis; - the aftermath of the Levenson enquiry and the question of increased media regulation; - the successes and failures of important media players, including Baron Beaverbrook and Lord Northcliffe in the 19th Century, and Rupert Murdoch and Mark Zuckerberg in the 20th and 21st century. Throughout the book, parallels are drawn between current issues and developments in the press and society and those from previous decades, further illuminating the role, both historic and ongoing, of the news media in Britain. Temple concludes the book by looking to the future of print journalism, calling for a reassessment of its role in the 21st century; redefining what journalism should be and reasserting its value in society today. This far-reaching analysis will be an invaluable resource for both students and researchers of Journalism and Media studies"--
