Through a series of interviews with top Canadian investigative journalists, Investigative Reporting in Canada engages students as they evaluate key investigative reporting techniques and challenges, while at the same time inspiring them to employ these techniques in their own work. Eachchapter focuses on an award-winning article or series, and includes a discussion of what prompted the journalist to cover the story, how they conducted their investigation, what obstacles were encountered, what techniques were employed, and what lessons were learned. This is an essential text forany college or university course on investigative reporting.
Maxine Ruvinsky is a former journalist and professor of journalism. She is the author of two other Oxford University Press textbooks: Practical Grammar, 3e, 2014; and Reporting for the Media, Canadian Edition, 2011
