Book Review Abstract

Lisa M. George of Hunter College and Editor-in-Chief, Information Economics and Policy reviews "Out of Print: Newspapers, Journalism and the Business of News in the Digital Age", by George Brock. The Econlit abstract of this book begins: "Examines the past, present, and future of the news and journalism industry, and considers how journalism can flourish in a new communications age by exploiting developing opportunities, with a special focus on the United Kingdom. Discusses communicating whatever we please; the newspaper industry in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; the broadcasting era and the decline of newspapers; the development of the Internet; rethinking journalism again; the business model crumbling; credibility crumbling; the Leveson Inquiry's judgment; the generation of creative energy to rebuild with new materials; and clues to the future. Brock is Professor and Head of Journalism at City University London."
