Summary

While it's said that journalism is the first draft of history, The Mammoth Book of Journalism demonstrates that sometimes the reporters have outdone the historians in analyzing great events and bringing them to life. Veteran editor and former journalist Jon E. Lewis has chosen the best articles, editorials, reviews, commentary, interviews, and reportage for this unique anthology, which spans from Charles Dickens on "Execution by Guillotine" and Mark Twain on "Americans Abroad" to contemporary reporting of the first McDonald's in Moscow and the funeral of Princess Diana. Covering such diverse topics as war, politics, sports, disasters, crime, fashion, humor, civil rights, and culture, this unique encyclopedic collection features such award-winning and event-making writers as H. L. Mencken, Martha Gellhorn, Studs Terkel, William Shirer, Harrison Salisbury, Tom Wolfe, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, John Hersey, and many more. Whether with the humor of P. J. O'Rourke, the film criticism of Pauline Kael, the observations of Bill Byrson, the book reviews of Dorothy Parker, or the political analysis of I. F. Stone, The Mammoth Book of Journalism will delight and inform not only the student of the modern newspaper but also lovers of history-in-the-making.
