International News In The Digital Age

RRP $287.99

The new research presented in this volume suggests that general perceptions (cultural, psychological, geographical), allied to the customs and values of journalism, and underpinned by the uses of technology, significantly shape international news. This gives rise to a blend of the old and the new; traditions of cultural centredness and innovative practices; anchorages of place and the rootlessness of globalization. Technology per se has not swept all before it. On the other hand, its uses have altered the means and methods of international news sourcing, construction and dissemination. Consequently, the uptake of technology has contributed to fundamental changes in style and form, and has greatly facilitated cross-cultural exchanges. The category a international newsa (TM) is now more of a hybrid, as recognized by the BBC and others. The chapters in this book demonstrate that this hybridity is unevenly distributed across geo-political domains, and often across time. Nevertheless, as the contributors to this volume show, the concept of a international newsa (TM) relies on tightly interwoven elements of orthodox journalism, social media, civic expression and public assembly.


Bad News

RRP $19.99

The second of the Melrose novels.

Bad News takes Patrick into his early twenties. Constrained to fly to New York to collect his monstrous father's ashes, fully in the grip of massive addiction, he endures a weekend hunting for drugs and attempting to avoid figures from David Melrose's life. This is a brilliant portrait of socialite Manhattan and its dark avenues, and of a hallucinatory, desperate attempt to hide from the encroaching past.

His superbly acclaimed Melrose novels are Never Mind, Bad News, Some Hope (previously published collectively as the Some Hope trilogy), Mother's Milk (shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2006) and At Last.
