Defence journalism, though very much a part of modern day journalism, has practically very little literature for reference. Being the first book on defence journalism, with special reference to India, it analyses the love-hate relationship between the military and the media. For the first time the definition of defence journalism has been encoded by the author. The book elaborates the essential information, facts, sources, and the qualities required to become a successful defence journalist. A code of ethics for defence writers and the caution against pitfalls of defence reporting is the hallmark of the book.
The aim of this book is to familiarize the readers with topics that make news, with the subjects that invariably draw the attention of the journalists because they may matter to the audience, and with the themes that are newsworthy and recurring. The book explains those words that could be confusing, and which are utterly Indian or may not echo all over the country. The book is useful for student journalists and media professionals; for those whose interests or careers are closely related with journalism, media and public relations; and for those who want to know and report on India, or from Bharat, or out of Hindustan. KEY FEATURES • Highly useful and informative • Covers all platforms of journalism and media: newspapers, magazines, radio, television and Internet • A Journalism and Media Calendar at the end • Reference to news items, published in real newspapers/websites
The Indian Navy has gradually emerged as an indispensable tool of Indian diplomacy in recent years, making it imperative for Indian policy-makers and naval thinkers to think anew the role of the nation’s naval forces in Indian strategy. There is a long tradition in India of viewing the maritime dimension of security as central to the nation’s strategic priorities. With India's economic rise, India is trying to bring that focus back, making its navy integral to national grand strategy. This volume is the first full-length examination of the myriad issues that have emerged out of the recent rise of Indian naval power.
The Indian media is witnessing an explosive situation with newspaper and magazine circulations increasing in great numbers and television news channels—in both English and regional languages—going up by the day. Internet news portals, too, are recording a good number of hits. Journalism, then, holds tremendous promise for both seasoned and budding journalists. However, behind every promise, there lurk dangers and temptations, which must be scrupulously avoided if the basic values of the profession are to be safeguarded. Otherwise, the relentless spotlight of criticism will turn on journalism and its practitioners. 21st Century Journalism in India is a path-breaking book that looks at the practices and theories of journalism in the 21st century. This collection of writings by practising journalists is perhaps unique in that they have turned the spotlight on their own profession. The volume is thematically divided into four sections: - REPRESENTING THE UNREPRESENTED deals with media representation (or lack of it) of largely ignored sections of society, such as homosexuals, Dalits and other minorities or weaker groups. - THE PLURALITY OF PRACTICE studies the coverage of vital areas such as economics, legal issues, science, arts and culture, and humour. - MEDIA IN PERSPECTIVE looks at different kinds of journalistic practices, including photojournalism - FUTURE TRENDS discusses newer forms of journalism, like blogging and citizen journalism.
In addition to making a comprehensive survey of journalism, other mass media, and public relations in India, Mehta discusses such issues as freedom of the press, press laws, and developments in the international regulation of the media. His book is also a bibliography and a sourcebook of information on advertising codes; accreditation rules for media representatives and other information on Indian media and journalism.
