Pearson has filled a noticeable gap in the market by producing a practical guide to Australian media law from the perspective of the working journalist, rather than the lawyer. It is a perspective that is missing in two other key texts in the field, Sally Walker's The Law of Journalism and Armstrong, Lindsay and Watterson's Media Law in Australia.
