The Southern journalist was more likely to be a Romantic and an intellectual. The region's journalism was personal, colorful, and steeped in the classics. This title suggests that the South's journalism struck a literary pose closer to the older English press than to the democratic penny press or bourgeois magazines of the urban North.

"Both newspaper and magazine journalism in the nineteenth century fully participated in the development and emergence of American realism in the arts, which attempted to portray everyday life accurately, especially in fiction. In photographs and artists' sketches as well as news articles and features, journalists exposed the stories and conditions that became the material for American realism, and they were also its early and vocal advocates. This relationship peaked from 1890 to 1910, when writers who might be called the first literary journalists closed the circle by more fully adopting the fiction writer's style of attempting to 'show the reader real life, ' as their literary progeny Tom Wolfe would put it many years later."--Page 4 of cover.

"In The Coming of the Frontier Press, Barbara Cloud describes how newspaper publishers joined nineteenth-century Americans as they headed west to settle the frontier. Unable to make their fortunes in gold mining, these publishers returned to their first calling, newspapers. Focusing on the period from 1840 to 1890, Cloud argues that these early papers played a crucial role in civilizing the West, bringing spread-out communities together by providing a forum for political discourse and a source for community news, as well as stories from the East. Cloud investigates both the positive and negative influences of the frontier press, from the role of newspapers in railroad expansion to their excessive zeal to make room for settlers who would become their subscribers and their advertisers. Ultimately, few papers survived into the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, but Cloud rounds out this study with an analysis of those that did endure and a look at how the innovations in content and appearance of western news sheets would affect print media nationwide."--BOOK JACKET.

The traditional approach to studying American photojournalism explains the what and who of photojournalism — what events and developments occurred, what notable images were taken, and who took them. Without neglecting those concerns, American Photojournalism emphasizes the why. It explains how contemporary photojournalism is grounded in three large ideas: the desire to witness and record historical events and important people, the belief in photography's power to advance social justice, and the embrace of a universal humanism. Cookman argues that contemporary photojournalists are strongly influenced by these three ideas, and that these ideas have become the central tenets of the profession.
