“Primary sources have never looked so lively. These excellent books are divided into 12 chapters, each one detailing a different moment from each media form’s history. These intense, dramatic, and remarkable events (‘Napster Revolutionizes the Music Industry,’ ‘Quiz Show Scandals Change TV Advertising’) invite students to see history as a compelling narrative rather than a collection of dates and names. Each book contains clear primary source documents and short, readable chunks of text. Sidebars are engaging, making good use of font size so readers can tell what information is most important. The story of Nelly Bly’s reporting on Blackwell’s Island, NY, is a particularly strong aspect of Newspaper History. VERDICT A must-have that brings history alive.”
