inventionby Andrew Pettegree


Renaissance scholar Andrew Pettegree proffers an account of the first four centuries of the news business.  He portrays the four essential elements of the enterprise – speed, reliability, control of content, and entertainment – in an epoch of change both in Europe and the quite new New World.  Pettegree also discusses the controversial aspects of profit and how reportage not only informs the political process, but becomes an integral part of it.
