The Sage Encyclopedia
Edited by Gregory Borchard
Journalism permeates our lives and shapes our thoughts in ways that we have long taken for granted.
Whether it is National Public Radio in the morning or the lead story on the Today show, the morning newspaper headlines, up-to-the-minute Internet news, grocery store tabloids, Time magazine in our mailbox, or the nightly news on television, journalism pervades our lives.
The Encyclopedia of Journalism covers all significant dimensions of journalism, such as print, broadcast, and Internet journalism; U.S. and international perspectives; and history, technology, legal issues and court cases, ownership, and economics.
The encyclopedia has approximately 500 signed entries from scholars, experts, and journalists, under the direction of lead editor Gregory Borchard of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
I got to know Greg when he was a graduate student at the University of Florida. He taught for us and I ended up serving as the chair of his doctoral committee. He wrote a splendid dissertation and it has been gratifying to see his success in journalism education.
I wrote two pieces for the Encyclopedia, one on Ernest Hemingway and one on John Hersey.
Here is “Clarity Amid Chaos,” the Hersey essay
Here is “Monologues with the Maestro,” the Hemingway essay
