Ross Eaman, "Historical Dictionary of Journalism"

"Journalism, the discipline of gathering, writing, editing, and reporting news, applies to various media-including but not limited to newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and the Internet. The word journalist entered the language in the early 18th century to designate a new kind of writer, about a century before journalism made its appearance. Though it has varied in form, the practice gradually distinguished itself from other forms of writing by focusing on the present, taking an eyewitness perspective, and relying on everyday language." This Historical Dictionary of Journalism explores the genre and its evolution over the centuries by way of a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on different styles of journalism, different types of media, and important writers and editors.
