CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Public Affairs for Journalists is a punchy and practical introduction to all
aspects of central and local government. It provides journalism students with
all the information they will need to cover public affairs confidently.
The text starts with the emergence of Britain's constitution, the changing
role of the monarchy and the origins of parliamentary democracy. It goes on to
explore the roles of individual departments of state, such as the Treasury, and
recent moves away from 'big government' towards more commercially driven forms
of public service delivery. It also looks at Britain's position in the world
with chapters on the EU and IR.
The second half of the book examines the evolution of the present-day council
framework. It explores the complexities of local government finance and
explores the roles of elected councilors, emergency services and individual
departments. The book concludes by looking at the Freedom of Information Act.
Public Affairs for Journalists is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre.
