Winter reading list

Every year around Memorial Day, RTM publishes a summer reading list with capsule reviews of recommended books on media criticism, quality journalism, and media activism. But this year, so many great books came out in the fall that we couldn't resist putting together a Winter Reading List as well. We'll have printed copies to distribute at the Memphis media reform conference, or you can download a copy here (pdf).

This time around, we feature new titles from Amy Goodman, bell hooks, Jeff Cohen, Jeff Chester, Henry Jenkins, Giuliana Sgrena and more. For real bookworms, check out our bookshelf page, where all new book reviews are posted as they're written.

The media's job is to interest the public in the public interest. -John Dewey
