Henning Noske Journalism: what one should know and can do / Reading book and manual. Kyiv: Tsentr Vilnoii Presy, 2017. — 312 p.
Henning Noske titled his work ‘Journalism: what one should know and can do’ a reading book and manual. From the first glance, it is a weird combination. A manual has to give generalized and structured knowledge in some discipline, and a reading book contains additional examples and illustrations. However, H. Noske managed with this ambitious task. His work covers the basic principles of journalistic activity followed by numerous practical examples. Especially important is that the author is not a professional researcher or lecturer, he is a practical man who decided to help beginners choose the right way in journalism.
This is the 19th translated edition from German in the Library of Mass Communication and Media Literacy of the Academy of Ukrainian Press.
