Overview

Essential Public Affairs for Journalists is the definitive handbook for journalism students looking for a firm foundation in their understanding of central and local government. It guides readers through the constitutional framework and the governing institutions of the United Kingdom before considering the electoral system and the principal political parties. A number of key topics are discussed in turn, including the National Health Service, education, utilities and industry, and social security. The author examines both how these services operate and how they can generate a wealth of informative stories. End-of-chapter features summarize the key points from each chapter, allowing students to recap on areas that are likely to be examined. 'Topical Feature Ideas' support the development of research skills, enabling students to pinpoint the facts they need to write a compelling article. Online ResourcesFurther 'Topical Feature Ideas' can be found with the online resources that accompany this book, which also include links to reliable and informative sources.

A very user-friendly and engaging book; topics are communicated to students in way that they can understand rather than feel overwhelmed by - especially if they have never studied public administration or politics before. * Sallyann Halliday, Senior Lecturer, Leeds Business School, Leeds Beckett University * It is a key text for all students considering entering the field of journalism. * Claire Wolfe, Principal Lecturer in Journalism, University of Worcester * It is beautifully written, comprehensive, and reliable. * Jonathan Brown, Lecturer in Media Production: Journalism, York St John University * It is a vital text book for journalism training. It makes difficult topics readable and interesting without undermining the importance of the subject. * John Curzon, Senior Lecturer in Journalism, Bristol School of Film and Journalism, University of West England *
