'This wonderfully intelligent book... will enlarge and deepen our view of the press and will strengthen our understanding of the relation between journalism and civic life.' - James Carey, Columbia University 'Two enterprising scholars and newspaper buffs offer here an original new frame for American journalism history by analyzing the changing appearance of newspapers.' - Columbia Journalism Review 'The best - that is, the most well-written, comprehensive, and cogent - text to date on the history of newspapers in America. It will be useful for undergraduate and graduate courses, and will be of considerable interest to general readers.' - Neil M. Postman, New York University 'Offers a useful and accessible overview of the history of American newspaper form. Ideally, [this book] will also serve as a baseline and model for future studies analyzing the relationship between form and the role a medium plays in society.' - SHARP News (Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing) 'Barnhurst and Nerone cover ground that has rarely been tread before. And they do it with a keen eye on historical context.' - Nieman Reports
