Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


This chapter describes the rise of the modern business press. Its purpose is to characterize the overall expansion of what has become an important actor in the environment of business and to explore an important, yet understudied, dimension of the media-as-business intersection; namely, the autonomization of business news production, which has today emerged as a distinct field of practice.
