Essential Public Affairs for Journalists is an invaluable guide for journalism students and those already in the industry. Offering comprehensive coverage of the workings of both central and local government, it provides all the information students and professionalism will need to cover public affairs with confidence. Beginning by outlining the constitutional framework and the governing institutions of the UK, the book then moves on to explore Britain's role in the EU and the wider world of international relations. In the second half of the text, the focus shifts to local government, where such headline-grabbing subjects as school catchment areas, council tax and public transport, are reviewed and explained. The second edition is fully up-to-date with the 2010 general election, and includes the latest details of the coalition government's policy agenda. Essential Public Affairs for Journalists is also supported by an Online Resource Centre with the following features: · Regular Updates: New developments in central and local government are succinctly summarized so that the book is always up-to-date · News Feeds: Real life articles from different news sites are linked to via RSS · Audio podcasts on reporting public affairs in practice · Tables · Web links

"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, former editor, TheIndependent"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

  • By Benjamon on 8 June 2012

    We had to buy this book as part of our course requirement for our Public Administration module within my Journalism degree at university.It is well set out and written in plain old English, making it easy to understand - always useful when dealing with politics.It covers everything from Local Government to National Government, the EU to Devolution in N.Ireland, Scotland and Wales, NHS and the Treasury, NATO and United Nations.It's always hard to study something when you know you are going to be examined in it, but Morrison writes in a clear and coherent manner which makes it easier. It covered everything that I was examined on and more, and was therefore the only book we needed for this module as opposed to other topics which required an extensive reading list.

    Interesting book

  • By kate.f on 10 October 2012

    I bought this book primarily to augment my knowledge of a subject I knew something about already and was dismayed to discover that in this area it was full of errors. Since, by definition, I can't know whether this is also the case for those subjects of which I know little or nothing, I realised it simply wasn't fit for purpose as a reference book so had to return it. I therefore couldn't possibly recommend it.
