The sub-title for this volume reads ‘Being a detailed guide to the entire range of newspaper work and the careers it offers, an analysis for the general reader of the principles, standards and codes of a free Press, and a textbook for courses of study in journalism, the whole written by editors and leading authorities in the newspaper industry.’
The volume includes an essay by Fleming, entitled "Foreign News". Fleming was Kemsley’s Foreign Manager from 1945 to 1959.
"Foreign news is no more or less important than any other category of news, but it is more difficult and expensive to obtain, and our insularity makes the digestion of foreign news more of an effort both for the editiorial machine and for the public" (Ian Fleming)
