Product Description

Review

This is a wonderfully thorough, clear and up-to-date guide to the political mechanics of the country. James Morrison takes readers by the hand and leads them expertly through the twisty byways of British public life and its multifarious institutions. (Roger Alton, Editor, The Independent)

This book is an invaluable text for both journalism students and industry practitioners. Morrison not only explains how the political system works, he explains why it matters to both training and working reporters and the relevance of political stories to the daily lives of readers, viewers and listeners. (Amanda Ball, NCTJ Chief Examiner in Public Affairs)

About the Author

James Morrison is a freelance journalist, writer and lecturer. He was course leader of four NCTJ diplomas at City College Brighton and Hove, before moving into the Higher Education sector. He currently lectures at Kingston University and is a member of the NCTJ's Public Affairs board.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a long-awaited guide to the structures of government and politics for training and student journalists. Generally it is very accessible and comprehensive. I have added it to the reading list of my 180 postgraduate journalism students.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Unfaithful Servant on 15 Mar. 2010
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent guide to public affairs in the UK for journalism students, practicing journalists and anyone with an interest in how the powers that be influence our lives. It is well laid out and clearly written, with some excellent examples of politics through the years. A few minor gripes - it occasionally slips into jargon and summaries at the end of each chapter, like Oxford University Press's Essential Law for Journalists, would have been most welcome. Yet as a guide to such a vast, sprawling and complicated area it remains indispensable.
