Brexit, Boris and the Media (Paperback)
(This item cannot be returned.)
The 2019 General election was a moment in history. After three years of political crisis, it finally took the UK out of the EU. How did it happen? What role did the media play in the political battles between Leave and Remain, which ended with Boris Johnson in No 10 with an unassailable majority? And what are the implications of a rancorous campaign on future relations between politicians and the media, which is meant to hold them to account on behalf of the public?
This book - the 22nd volume in the acclaimed Abramis 'Hackademic' series, combining insights of media professionals with the latest university research - tries to answer questions which are fundamental to the health of our democracy.
Contributors include many of the country's top journalists and media academics, with an introduction by BBC Today programme's Nick Robinson and a postscript by Jon Snow of Channel 4 News.
