Reviews of previous editions:
Tom Crone, with both journalistic and legal experience has written for the journalist who may not have much legal awareness. His clear, concise, no-nonsense approach will be of immense benefit to anyone who requires a 'quick fix' of knowledge in the quite intricate area of the law covered by this book.'
'This is a well written book that simplifies both legal jargon and argument'
'...this is a useful volume, with all the topis set out clearly and concisely in no-nonsense language, and individual subjects easy to find. Law and the Media should be within easy reach in newsrooms.'
Mike Dodd, PA Mediapoint Website

I found this book clear, concise and to the point. As an absolute beginner in both Media and Law I found that this book helped me to quickly grasp all the significant facts that I needed. Easy to follow, with good explanations and clearly titled chapters. Couldn't have passed my law exam without it!
