Descriptions du produit

Long before the invention of printing, let alone the availability of a daily newspaper, people desired to be informed. In the pre-industrial era news was gathered and shared through conversation and gossip, civic ceremony, celebration, sermons, and proclamations. The age of print brought pamphlets, edicts, ballads, journals, and the first news-sheets, expanding the news community from local to worldwide. This groundbreaking book tracks the history of news in ten countries over the course of four centuries. It evaluates the unexpected variety of ways in which information was transmitted in the premodern world as well as the impact of expanding news media on contemporary events and the lives of an ever-more-informed public. Andrew Pettegree investigates who controlled the news and who reported it; the use of news as a tool of political protest and religious reform; issues of privacy and titillation; the persistent need for news to be current and journalists trustworthy; and people's changed sense of themselves as they experienced newly opened windows on the world. By the close of the eighteenth century, Pettegree concludes, transmission of news had become so efficient and widespread that European citizens--now aware of wars, revolutions, crime, disasters, scandals, and other events--were poised to emerge as actors in the great events unfolding around them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant book 22 juin 2014
Par Craig Carlson - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Sometimes the best way to understand the meaning of something is not to go through a blow-by-blow of all its attributes, but rather to experience how it came to be. Pettegree's history of news is a breath of fresh air, especially in an age where social media has us scurrying around trying to re-invent the wheel.

The most profound idea in the book is that publishers have always had to come back to center, so to speak, and serve their readers. No readers, no publisher. But that's at the base. What happens if you start a car wash with a hose and a sponge? And a competitor across the street starts theirs with a hose, sponge and soap. An arms race of car wash gear ensues to attract the most customers. News publishing has been no different. I found Pettegree's recounting of news operations throughout history especially illuminating in this time in which online pubs believe that DIY, in which there are no editors looking over your shoulder, is superior to the old-fashioned collaborative process of having editors and a staff. Historically, we're in the same cycles.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating and surprising examination of the birth of news 30 juillet 2015
Par TechJunkie - Publié sur

I found this book fascinating, but I've been a newspaper reporter in a major market for many years and of course it would be of interest to me. The insights are fascinating on the whys and wherefores of the spread of news. Of course the printing press was revolutionary, but this book examines the economics behind keeping those presses running. And who had the money? The merchant class which needed fast, reliable information in order to make business decisions. At the same time, the Roman empire had to move information almost as fast as it moved its troops and came up with a version of early snail mail to rule its subjects and allocate troop strength. The book, IMO, is four stars because the author is very good, but not a writer at the level of a William Manchester or a Laura Hillenbrand. This book contains great information that creates a baseline explaining so many other things about advancing civilization and the role that reliable information, spread to the masses, played.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Over-excited verbiage: a missed opportunity 22 juin 2016
Par Simon Barrett 'Il Penseroso' - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Frustratingly diffuse and hyperbolic, for all the author's vast reading, and the unconscionable amount of praise it has unaccountably gathered, this is not 'proper' history, though doubtless it will serve to prop up many a media course. Besides having better pictures, Anthony Smith's The Newspaper: an International History did the job in half the number of pages and brought the story up to date (1979) as well - this stops timorously at 1800, just when things are REALLY starting to hum. 'Breathtaking' (pp19,40) is the kind of word Pettegree favours, as though fearful of losing our attention. He sure lost mine

Well researched and an interesting take on news and its origins. Could have been tightened up. I recommend Mitchell Stephen's History of News.
