Featured Title

After Leveson? The Future for British Journalism
Edited by John Mair

Was Lord Justice Leveson really the harbinger of the new and the end of the newspaper world as we know it and as he was portrayed to be? The War for Leveson's Ear has been fought by Britain's newspaper industry in the High Court in the Strand over eight months of open hearings. The cacophony surrounding his Report pre and post publication on November 29th 2012 was a sight and sound to behold.

After Leveson? The Future For British Journalism
History of the NASUWT
by Nigel de Gruchy

"Give us justice or we fight!" was the 1919 clarion call of the Union's founding leaders which echoed down the years. Whether it was outrageous denial of recognition, or low pay with negotiations conducted in secrecy, or voluntary 'duties' taken for granted, or controversial hikes in pension contributions (1956 and 1972 are being repeated today) or being expected to teach disruptive pupils in impossible circumstances, the NASUWT believed in the unique feature distinguishing a genuine trade union from other types of organisation – the willingness of employees to challenge by direct action gross injustice perpetrated by employers and government.

However, the NASUWT preferred compromise and consensus. National incomes policies and social contracts were supported, subject to fairness and even application to all. Third party intervention in salary negotiations proved more productive than the 'jungle of free collective bargaining'. The History of the NASUWT ends on an optimistic and positive note welcoming the Social Partnership with the Labour Government in the early 2000s. The wanton destruction of that productive relationship between government and all but one of the school teacher unions after the general election of 2010 by the Coalition Parties is in the words of the author "reckless and deplorable".

The Phone Hacking Scandal: Journalism on Trial
Revised Second Edition
edited by John Mair & Richard Keeble

Hackgate is the biggest scandal to engulf the mainstream press in decades. What started as a small bush fire – with News of the World royal editor and his private detective friend Glenn Mulcaire being detained at Her Majesty's pleasure in 2007 for hacking illegally into the phones of the royal family and others – became a forest fire destroying countless reputations (and the NoW) in its wake.

The first edition, published in February 2012, soon became the standard text on the Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the British press.

It was serialised over twenty five days in the Media Guardian and read by Lord Justice Leveson himself. This second edition updates the thirty original contributions and includes new material from Sir Harold Evans, Roy Greenslade and Ray Snoddy on Leveson and after. Other contributors include Chris Atkins, Steven Barnett, Patrick Barrow, Teodora Beleaga, Daniel Bennett, Damian Paul Carney, Brian Cathcart, Glenda Cooper, the Co-ordinating Committee for Media Reform, Tim Crook, Sean Dodson, Sallyanne Duncan, Chris Frost, Ivor Gaber , Tony Harcup, Phil Harding, Huw L. Hopkins, Mike Jempson, Nicholas Jones, Tim Luckhurst, Kevin Marsh, Ben McConville, Jackie Newton, Eamonn O'Neill, Richard Peppiatt, Wayne Powell, Stewart Purvis, Alan Rusbridger, Justin Schlosberg, Kate Smith, Judith Townend, John Tulloch and Barry Turner.

Edited by Richard Lance Keeble and John Mair, it is a 'must read' for all concerned about journalism standards and all involved in journalism and journalism education – either as teachers or students.
