Book News Annotation:

Gaines, long an investigative journalist with the Chicago Tribune and a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner (now an instructor at the U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), presents an introductory textbook accessible to undergraduate students on the craft of investigative reporting. He has organized his treatment into chapters covering the role of the investigative reporter; how to investigate and pitch a story; investigating a person, place, or entity; using the Internet during investigations; investigating those who guard the public (e.g. firemen); examining the police and the courts; investigating charities, nonprofit organizations, and foundations; investigating governments; reporting on consumer fraud; investigating health care; investigating businesses; and special topics and tricks of the trade. Each chapter includes at least one real world case study, a chapter recap, and class assignments. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
