They reported wars, outraged monarchs and promoted the case for their country's freedom. The pages of Irish Journalism Before Independence: More a Disease than a Profession are filled with the remarkable stories of reporters, proprietors and propagandists. Sixteen leading writers celebrate the emergence of Irish Journalism in this original and engaging volume. These leading media academics, historians and scholars join in what is a festschrift travelling the long Irish nineteenth century to 1922. Their stories, narratives and histories illustrate the emergence of Irish journalism chronicling the evolution and development of the profession, and the various challenges confronted by the first generation of modern journalists. The profession's past is framed by reference to its practitioners and their practice. Readers are treated to studies of foreign correspondents, editorial writers, provincial newspaper owners, sports journalists and the challenges of minority language journalism. The volume goes beyond Ireland to explore the work of Irish journalists abroad and shows how the great political debates about Ireland's place in the United Kingdom served as a backdrop to newspaper publication in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In his preface Professor James Curran concludes that the volume "advances by leaps and bounds the history of the Irish press". The collection makes valuable and important contribution to our knowledge of Irish journalism - and like all good reportage it offers its readers a very good read.

This book analyses travel texts aimed at the emergent Irish middle classes in the long nineteenth century. Unlike travel writing about Ireland, Irish travel writing about foreign spaces has been under-researched. Drawing on a wide range of neglected material and focusing on selected European destinations, this study draws out the distinctive features of an Irish corpus that often subverts dominant trends in Anglo-Saxon travel writing. As it charts Irish participation in a new ‘mass’ tourism, it shows how that participation led to heated ideological debates in Victorian and Edwardian Irish print culture. Those debates culminate in James Joyce’s ‘The Dead’, which is here re-read through new discursive contextualizations. This book sheds new light on middle-class culture in pre-independence Ireland, and on Ireland’s relation to Europe. The methodology used to define its Irish corpus also makes innovative contributions to the study of travel writing.

At the turn of the 20th century, the significant social, political, and technological changes that were occurring in society also heralded new roles and functions for journalism as a profession and as an aspect of a burgeoning mass mediated society. Redefining Journalism in the Era of the Mass Press, 1880-1920 examines journalism’s roles, products, and practices during an era of rapid change and transformation, and how these changes within the field reflected broader social, political, economic, and technological changes. The era of the mass press was one within which the speed and impact of change both reflected and contributed to transformations in journalism – transformations that would endure until the rise of the Internet disrupted the field once again. This book was originally published as a special issue of Media History.

Das Buch erzählt die Lebensgeschichte der Schwestern Meg, Jo, Beth und Amy, die gemeinsam mit ihren Eltern in Neuengland aufwachsen. Die kluge, jungenhafte Josephine, die hübsche und fügsame Meg, die selbstlose und friedliche Beth und das Nesthäkchen, die egoistische Amy, werden von ihren kindlichen Luftschlössern bis hin zur Frauwerdung begleitet. Marmee, Mutter der vier kleinen Frauen, wacht aufmerksam über die Entwicklung und den Umgang ihrer Kinder. Der Vater ist im Krieg. Meg, die im Vergleich zu ihren Schwestern den größten Wert auf die Einhaltung bestehender Konventionen legt, heiratet schon früh. Mit John Brooke, dem Hauslehrer des jungen Nachbarn und Freundes Laurie, gründet sie eine Familie, die bald um die beiden Kinder John, Jr. "Demi" und Margreth "Daisy" erweitert wird. Später kommt noch Josephine "Josy" dazu, die in Little Men erwähnt wird. Beth, die ihr Leben ihrer Familie widmet und aufopferungsvoll im Haushalt und bei kranken und armen Nachbarn arbeitet, ist selbstlos bis in den Tod. Bei der uneigennützigen Versorgung einer armen Nachbarsfamilie steckt sie sich mit Scharlach an. Wenn sie sich auch vorübergehend von der Krankheit erholt, ist diese ausschlaggebend für Beths frühen Tod. Amy, das Nesthäkchen der Familie, möchte alles und bekommt es nicht immer. Sie sieht sich als Künstlerin, kann als Gesellschafterin mit einer Tante nach Europa reisen und sich dort künstlerisch weiterbilden. Sie heiratet Laurie, den wohlhabenden Nachbarsjungen ihrer Familie, den langjährigen Seelenbruder ihrer Schwester Jo, kehrt gemeinsam mit ihm nach Amerika zurück und bekommt eine Tochter. Jo möchte im Gegensatz zu Amy viel, bekommt aber weniger. Sie wünscht sich unter anderem finanzielle und individuelle Unabhängigkeit, Ruhm und Anerkennung als Schriftstellerin sowie eine Reise nach Europa. Die ersehnte Reise wird nicht von ihr, sondern von Amy angetreten.
