Book reviews and opportunities of interest to JHistory readers

Editor's note: The following book reviews of relevance to journalism or media history have been culled from the broader stream of reviews posted across H_Net networks. And the research grant announcement is one of many that are posted regarding funding available to travel to and conduct research at archival collections around the nation and beyond. JHistory reminds it subscribers that it is often worth researching whether an archive of interest offers fellowships of this sort to visiting scholars.
