about

  Journalism matters--and this book proves it.

This insightful, eloquent and entertaining anthology paints a compelling portrait of Canada and Canadian journalism in a rapidly changing world. It brings together, in one volume, thirty years of the prestigious James M. Minifie Lecture at the University of Regina's School of Journalism. Touching on a wide range of topics from war to climate change to our ongoing constitutional crisis, these lectures, delivered by some of Canada's leading journalists, stand as a tribute to press freedom and journalistic imagination in Canada.

This volume should be required reading not just for journalists, but for anyone concerned about the state of the democratic process, a process that journalism informs and animates. With media industries in crisis and the democratic craft of journalism in peril, this collection serves as a chronicle of the re-invention of Canada, and of Canadian journalism, over the last three decades. The Minifie Lectures, 1981-2010 is an intriguing glimpse into the inner life of the press corps; as such, it will be an essential guide for journalists and media reform movements alike in the years ahead.
