    David H. Weaver is the Roy W. Howard Professor in Journalism and Mass Communication Research in the School of Journalism at Indiana University's Bloomington campus. He is widely published in journalism and political communication.

    Lars Willnat is Professor in the School of Journalism at Indiana University. Before joining IU in 2009, Professor Willnat taught at the George Washington University in Washington, DC and at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. His research interests include media effects on political attitudes, theoretical aspects of public opinion formation, international communication, and political communication in Asia.

    The Global Journalist in the 21st Century systematically assesses the demographics, education, socialization, professional attitudes and working conditions of journalists in various countries around the world. This book updates the original Global Journalist (1998) volume with new data, adding more than a dozen countries, and provides material on comparative research about journalists that will be useful to those interested in doing their own studies.

    The editors put together this collection working under the assumption that journalistsÂ’ backgrounds, working conditions and ideas are related to what is reported (and how it is covered) in the various news media round the world, in spite of societal and organizational constraints, and that this news coverage matters in terms of world public opinion and policies. Outstanding features include:

    • Coverage of 33 nations located around the globe, based on recent surveys conducted among representative samples of local journalists
    • Comprehensive analyses by well-known media scholars from each country
    • A section on comparative studies of journalists
    • An appendix with a collection of survey questions used in various nations to question journalists

    As the most comprehensive and reliable source on journalists around the world, The Global Journalist will serve as the primary source for evaluating the state of journalism. As such, it promises to become a standard reference among journalism, media, and communication students and researchers around the world.
