In addition to the expected bibliographies, indexes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and directories, a number of important textbooks and manuals of general practice are included. While the majority of the items are books, Walford is a guide to reference material. Thus periodical articles, microforms, online and CD-ROM sources are all represented. In this volume a particular effort has been made to improve coverage of the latter two categories.

In general, communications is considered a glamor industry because of the creativity involved so competition is fierce, even for people with advanced degrees. I've known several people with journalism degrees who couldn't find a job so they ended up as high school teachers or something like that. It's all about your ability with words. Newscasts have to be written everyday. They have to have fresh, new, exciting, crisp stories. It takes a certain pragmatic skill to write good news copy quickly. If you can get a story, summarize it down into your own words very quickly, edit news footage to go with it to create a quick story on the nightly newscast, you will easily be in demand because these skills are rather rare. People who do these jobs often get tired of the stress involved and quit. On the other hand, I heard of one talk show host who had two jobs in different cities. He did his morning talk show, took a plane to the other city 150 miles away, did his evening show

This important book defines what investigative reporting is and what qualities it requires. Drawing on the experience of many well-known journalists in the field, the author identifies the skills, common factors and special circumstances involved in a wide variety of investigations. It examines how opportunities for investigations can be found and pursued, how informants can be persuaded to yield needed information and how and where this information can be checked. It also stresses the dangers and legal constraints that have to be contended with and shows real life examples such as the Cook Report formula, the Jonathan Aitken investigation and the Birmingham Six story. David Spark, himself a freelance writer of wide experience, examines how opportunities for investigations can be found and pursued, how informants can be persuaded to yield needed information and how and where this information can be checked. He also stresses the dangers and legal constraints that have to be contended with and shows investigators at work in two classic inquiries: · The mysterious weekend spent in Paris by Jonathan Aitken, then Minister of Defence Procurement · The career of masterspy Kim Philby Investigative Reporting looks at such fields for inquiry as company frauds (including those of Robert Maxwell), consumer complaints, crime, police malpractice, the intelligence services, local government and corruption in Parliament and in overseas and international bodies. The author believes that the conclusions that emerge from this far-reaching survey are of value not only in investigative journalism, but to practitioners in all branches of reporting.
