In the past quarter of a century, journalism education, communication theory, and "newswork" have all changed markedly. This book reexamines MacLean's ideas in light of these changes. Student and teacher, administrator and newsman -- all will find a treasure of information for discussion. As the editors Luigi Manca and Gail W. Pieper comment in their introductory chapter: "[MacLean] envisioned a new kind of journalist, a heretic, who would facilitate the communication process within society by helping all citizens to be part of public discourse. . . . And we hope a reexamination of MacLean's vision of journalism, his "heresy, " will help initiate long-needed changes in the way teach -- and in the way we do -- journalism.
