Summary "Environmental issues are of growing concern in China, with numerous initiatives aimed at cultivating dialogue and increasing awareness. And key to these initiatives is the environmental journalist. The first English-language study of this burgeoning new field, this book investigates Chinese environmental journalists - their methodologies, their attitudes toward the environment, and their views on the significance of their work - and concludes that most respond enthusiastically to government promptings to report on the environment and climate change. Additional chapters demonstrate journalists' impact in helping to shape governmental decision-making."--Back cover blurb.
