Essential Public Affairs for Journalists is an invaluable guide for both journalism students and practising journalists. It takes readers through details of the constitutional framework and the governing institutions of the UK; covers the NHS, the Treasury, industry, utilities, social security and home affairs; explores the role of the UK in the EU and the wider world of international relations; and focuses on local government issues and how these can generate a wealth of stories for the student and professional journalist alike.

The fourth edition has been updated with details of the cuts programme; coverage of the continuing debate over the rise of UKIP and Britain's future in the European Union; and an assessment of the immediate aftermath of the referendum on Scottish independence. There is clearer end of chapter guidance on the key issues students need to consider for the NCTJ essential public affairs course and a tighter focus on the material covered in the revised syllabus. The extensive pedagogy uses new examples to inspire students in the development of their own stories.

Review:

A work of extraordinary range and ambition that brilliantly succeeds in laying bare the workings of our nation. Above all else this is a readable, useable book; the information is accessible and the analysis is snappy and fair-minded. (Justin Webb, Presenter, The Today Programme, BBC Radio 4)

If this compendious volume had been at my elbow, explaining how all the bits join together as I started out in journalism, many things would be been easier to understand and write about. (Michael White, Assistant Editor and former Political Editor, The Guardian)

An essential guide for everybody in our trade. Finding your way around public bodies and laws is to discover how much of Britain works. And his time in journalism has taught James Morrison what journalists need to know: where and how to find stories. (Kevin Maguire, Associate Editor, The Daily Mirror)

Journalists need to know what they need to know. Government, at every level, and public bodies are where they will find the stories that really affect their readers, listeners, and the viewers. This is a practical guide to help cut through the bureaucracy, jargon, smoke-screens, and secrecy. (Bob Satchwell, Executive Director, Society of Editors)
