Senior Journalism lecturer for Coventry University, John Mair and Richard Lance Keeble have put together another book featuring professional journalists discussing certain subjects. This book, entitled The Phone Hacking Scandal: Journalism on Trial? follows the Leveson case on phone hacking in journalism, where many writers and editors are on trail over allegedly tapping celebrities phones to find stories.
The book features work from lecturers from top universities, professional journalists, authors and MA Journalism students from Coventry University and contains over 30 chapters surrounding the case. It will be available in February 2012 and CU Today will be exclusively extracting chapters from the book throughout January as articles to read and learn from, or work to support academic essays.
Furthermore, John Mair is holding an event to showcase the release of the book, with details found below:
