KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a reassessment of a book originally covered in the February 15th bulletin (153 J-109) under the title News Around the World. By exploring the workings of the major American press services--UP and AP--the career-minded reader is introduced to the mechanisms of those organizations, to the rivalry which acts as a stimulus to them both, and in general to the intricacies of international news gathering. A detailed history of the services is provided as well as a specific review of their functions and methods. Significant events in news reporting are recorded in which agencies have been particularly shrewd in circumventing censorship and other obstacles.
