This revised edition of Newspaper Feature Writing is at the cutting edge of the revolution. It has three main aims: to maintain and enhance the systematic approach to feature writing pioneered in the earlier editions; to help lecturers integrate CAR into their courses; and to give working journalists some instruction in CAR.
