For The Record: An Oral History Of Rochester, New York Newsworkers, Bonnie Brennen

Bonnie Brennen

For the Record focuses on the experiences of journalists, primarily in their own words, who worked in Rochester, New York, on the Gannett owned Democrat & Chronicle and the Times Union.

Although there is an enormous wealth of material available on the lives ...

Newsworkers: Toward A History Of The Rank And File, Hanno Hardt, Bonnie Brennen

Bonnie Brennen

Focusing on the period from the 1850s through the 1930s, the contributors show how issues of labor and class have been far more important in the formation of media institutions than previous accounts concede. These essays recover the history of ethnic and cultural diversity-including the contributions of women-that have enriched the process of communication.
