Journalism Right and Wrong
"This selection from the 350 or so columns Mayes has written in the past decade offers insight into the internal working and decision-making processes of one of the world's great newspapers. They cover a period in which, through its multi-award-winning website, the Guardian has become a truly global publisher. The columns provide a running debate on ethical issues, they explain how the paper works - and occasionally they discuss the Guardian's use and abuse of the English language." "It is a book that will open the door to what is still for many a mystifying world. At the same time it will transmit to students of journalism the enthusiasm for the craft that has carried Mayes through a career spanning half a century." --Book Jacket.
