'Andrew Pettegree's The Invention of News is a fascinating book - beautifully written, admirably organized, with a mass of information about even the most recondite means of collecting and transmitting news before 1800.'-Alastair Hamilton, TLS -- Alastair Hamilton TLS "Newspaper themselves were once new media. Yet as Andrew Pettegree explains in an elegantly written and beautifully constructed account, it took several centuries before they became the dominant medium for news."-Peter Wilby, New Statesman -- Peter Wilby New Statesman "From imperial messenger and town crier to Citizen Kane: a vigorous history of the rise of the news business."-Kirkus Kirkus Reviews "If you have ever wondered how this noisy, self-important carousel got going, Pettegree's book will tell you."-Jeremy Paxman, The Guardian -- Jeremy Paxman Guardian "The Invention of News is. .a painstaking study of news networks before and during the early days of newspapers .[which] challenges our preconceptions about the news...[I]f you believe in the examined life, in reflecting on your own behaviour, [it is] hugely interesting."-Andrew Marr, Prospect -- Andrew Marr Prospect 'The Invention of News is a valuable addition to our knowledge of European cultural history. It is also an ambitious book [and] a good history. It illuminates and entertains...'-Adrian Tinniswood, Literary Review -- Adrian Tinniswood Literary Review "Pettegree gets through this vast, multidirectional mass of early modern material lucidly and expertly."-Lawrence Klepp, The Weekly Standard -- Lawrence Klepp The Weekly Standard "A fascinating account of the gathering and dissemination of news from the end of the Middle Ages to the French Revolution, when the newspaper came of age."-Glenn Altschuler, The Huffington Post -- Glenn Altschuler The Huffington Post Magisterial ... The Invention of News is an outstanding introduction to the past that also helps us understand our future."-Adam Kirsch, The Barnes and Noble Review -- Adam Kirsch The Barnes and Noble Review "Pettegree relies on an impressive range of archival sources, including diaries, that illuminate how several individuals acquired and understood everyday events. This expansive view of news and how it reached people will be fascinating to readers interested in communication and cultural history."-Library Journal, starred review Library Journal "Groundbreaking."-Folger Magazine Folger Magazine 'Andrew Pettegree's capacious and compelling book traces the evolution of news, from the exchange of manuscripts in the late medieval period to the triumph of newspaper and journals as a medium for the expression of public opinion in the 18th-century Enlightenment...Pettegree's book is judicious and well written, with illustrations that give an immediate sense of how 'news' evolved from being the concern of the political elite to the privilege of entire nations.'-Justin Champion, BBC History Magazine -- Justin Champion BBC History Magazine "Though Pettegree's impeccably researched history ranges over four centuries and half a dozen countries, he manages to cover countless details without losing sight of broader themes."-Nick Romeo, The Daily Beast -- Nick Romeo The Daily Beast "Revelatory."-The New Yorker The New Yorker "The Invention of News delivers a rich and compelling narrative, which picks away at several common presumptions about the history of news."-Books and Culture Books and Culture "This is a wide-ranging and readable study-and a very good one-that makes clear the rise of journalism as we have long known it was anything but predictable centuries ago."?Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly "Howe's is a voice that ought still to be heard - and in this collection we may bear privileged witness to the gathering power of that voice over the course of its long development."?Open Letters Monthly Open Letters Monthly Winner of the 2015 Goldsmith Book Prize given by the Harvard Kennedy School, Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy. -- The Goldsmith Award Harvard Kennedy School "This is a wide-ranging study, but a good one, and one that makes clear the rise of journalism was anything but predictable."-Chris Sterling, CBQ -- Chris Sterling "This book covers the transmission of information to 1800; it contains a great mass of information about Renaissance communications and the expansion of understanding in the age of political and mercantile expansion."-Leonard R. N. Ashley, Chronique -- Leonard R. N. Ashley CHRONIQUE

Brilliant book 22. Juni 2014
Von Craig Carlson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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.
A fascinating and surprising examination of the birth of news 30. Juli 2015
Von TechJunkie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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.

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