Reviews

"Every chapter is excellent. Burt's writing is graceful and engaging. She presents each issue clearly, in context, and with multiple points of view. The book could be used as a main text for a progressive era journalism class, and as a secondary text for a journalism history of an American history course. It would also be useful as a secondary text for a political science class. This book should also be considered for use in media diversity classes where the historical context of labor clases, census controversy, lynching, immigration, and women's suffrage all resonate with and provide background for today's class, race. and gender issues."-American Journalism ?Every chapter is excellent.
