Sarah Grand was one of the most prominent New Women of the 1890s and a notable social purity feminist and suffragist. This collection offers important insights into the full range of her journalistic output and lesser-known fictional writings. It also makes available biographical and autobiographical material, and previously unpublished manuscript sources. The first volume reproduces Grand's articles and the contemporary critical reception of her work. The letters in volume two, written mostly in the 1920s and 1930s, shed light on Grand's genesis as a writer and her interaction with 1890s artistic and feminist circles. The third and fourth volumes contain a selection of short stories from three collections published at and after the turn of the century. These comment on some of the explosive issues of that time: feminism, decadence, eugenics, class, race and war. They also reflect Grand's exploration of the interplay between gender and genre.

More than a century after his death in 1897, Henry George remains one of the most original and influential economic thinkers in American history. His revolutionary theory on land taxation gained a tremendous following, reshaped the nation's political and economic debate, and continues today to be a widely discussed and controversial subject throughout the world. George's seminal work was Progress and Poverty (1879), but as a reformer, economist, journalist, and political candidate he wrote scores of articles on a vast array of topics, including political thought, election reform, immigration, labor, Lincoln, presidential campaigns, private property, socialism, industrialization, Ireland, Australia, the Chinese in California, and his race for mayor of New York City. His writing shaped a generation of statesmen and intellectuals, including Winston Churchill, Robert La Follette, Clarence Darrow, George Bernard Shaw, and Milton Friedman. Despite his profound influence on economic thought and American reform, he remains understudied, in part because many of his writings appeared in obscure journals, long-defunct daily newspapers, and long out-of-print collections. This four-volume set rectifies this problem by gathering all of George's hard-to-find articles and essays in one comprehensive edition. It also includes the first biographical sketch of him, written in 1884 and never before republished, as well as numerous articles he wrote during his tour of Australia in 1890. Edited by noted George scholar Kenneth C. Wenzer, each article is reprinted in its original form with annotations. There is a general introduction to each volume. A timeline of George's activities and travels is also included.

'The ultimate book on the creative skills of journalism' - Writing Magazine 'Useful and timely... it is refreshing to discover a book so overtly designed to inspire students to think about what can make writing good - or even great.' - Media International Australia This is a book about the art of writing for newspapers and magazine, but doesn't look at punctuation, spelling and the stylistic conventions of 'everyday' journalism.

Each piece will be contextualised and analysed encouraging readers to learn from the best practitioners. This book will inspire those who want to make their writing individual and memorable. Along the way the major elements of non-fiction writing will be introduced, in chapters organised by genre - profile writing, reportage, news analysis, investigation, sports writing, personal and opinion columns and 'lifestyle' among them.

By adopting a larger sweeping and tailoring itself for the contemporary journalistic arena, this book will be an essential purchase for the discerning journalist and journalism student.

The Craft of Corporate Journalism is a dynamic reference guide for business journalists, corporate communicators, and writers and editors of organizational publications. It is an indispensable manual that will be used daily by beginners and seasoned corporate writers/editors alike in the daily business of crafting creative organizational publications. Lionel Fisher writes in a fresh, down-to-earth style honed by his forty-five years of experience as a corporate communicator, newspaper correspondent/columnist, advertising/public relations creative director-copy chief, and as a freelance writer specializing in business-sales-marketing-organizational communications. He provides essential, hands-on counsel, instruction and advice on the esoteric challenges of corporate writing. The seminal message Fisher conveys is that business-related magazines, newsletters, ezines, and other organizational publications need not be dull, dry, or merely informational. Rather, corporate journalists must earn and sustain the interest of their readers, which can only be done with powerful writing. His descriptive instruction and crisp counsel is packed with riveting examples of journalistic and business prose to illustrate critical points as he teaches organizational communicators how to write. The author's engaging, iconoclastic style instructs on the essentials of corporate and business writing: How to craft powerful leads; compose and edit articles with the proper structure, pace, and flow; nurture creativity; dissolve writer's block and interview effectively. But organizational communicators must do more than just produce outstanding feature and news stories. They are also responsible for organizing their material into attractive, seductive packages. They must target and involve readers; present appetizing arrays of news and feature stories; define and tailor their publications; set stylistic guidelines; motivate correspondents; and much, much more.
