About the Author

Tony Harcup teaches journalism at the University of Sheffield in the UK, and has spent more than 20 years working as a staff and freelance journalist in both alternative and mainstream media before moving into journalism education. Tony has also researched extensively in the fields of journalism, news values, ethics and alternative media, and his books and journal articles are on students' reading lists at universities around the world. His book Journalism: Principles and Practice (Sage, 2015) is now in its third edition and has been translated into several languages, including Chinese and Korean. His other titles include The Ethical Journalist (Sage, 2007), Alternative Journalism, Alternative Voices (Routledge, 2013), the Oxford Dictionary of Journalism (Oxford University Press, 2014) and - with Peter Cole - Newspaper Journalism (Sage, 2010). In 2015 Tony was included in the Sage Video Collection with a talk on ethics in journalism: http://sk.sagepub.com/video/ethics-in-journalism


A holistic assessment of what journalism is all about, with plenty of enterprising interpretations of our trade - a word I prefer to 'profession'. I never met a more 'unprofessional' breed than that of my fellow hacks. This book will, I hope, lead our successors both to question and rebel more than we have. -- Jon Snow
This is a terrific text: original in its blend of theory and practice; always eminently readable; packed with references, anecdotes and ideas - and bang up to date. Above all, Tony Harcup conveys throughout his passion for responsible, reflective journalism. A must for all committed to improving the media. -- Richard Keeble
Engaging and valuable. This edition presents a thoroughly researched bedrock to teaching key concepts of journalism. Harcup's new offering of set ethical dilemmas is a seminar delight. -- Paula Hearsum
This new edition reflects how the internet has changed journalism and its landscape. Tony Harcup interlaces practical knowledge and theoretical insight in a user-friendly format to make this an excellent text for all categories of journalists and students. -- Mercy Ette

This is simply the best book for journalism students and their teachers that I have ever seen... Just over a decade ago Tony Harcup raised the bar when he used an innovative split-page technique to marry the often conflicting interests of journalism practice and the theoretical and ethical environment in which journalists operate. He has now upped the ante again with the e-book version of the third edition.

-- Gary Hudson
