Over the last two decades, reading groups have become increasingly popular in the UK and the USA. More and more people seem to be interested in sharing their reading experiences and hearing other readers discuss their views on books, whether this is online, through the mass media, or in face-to-face contexts.

In light of this explosion in popularity of reading groups, this ethnographic study focuses on several reading groups based across a variety of settings: public libraries, public houses and in readers' homes. A range of methods are used to investigate the practices of the individual readers and the groups, including participant observation, interviews, and audio-recordings of meetings.

Reading groups are found to be highly ritualized and potentially competitive places in which matters of identity and taste are often at stake. The groups studied are conceptualized as communities of practice, and the literary interpretations and evaluations offered within each group are shown to be a product of shared norms established by this group.


Audio-visual Coverage Of Courts

Researched over a period of 15 years by an author who has personally participated in the debate internationally, Audio-Visual Coverage of Courts, first published in 2008, was the first book to undertake a comprehensive comparative study of televised court proceedings in Great Britain, the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Exhaustive in his identification and analysis of relevant law and key developments, Daniel Stepniak draws on hitherto unpublished primary sources to undertake a largely unprecedented examination of the experiences of non-US courts.

Through analysis of the regulation of audio-visual reporting, the author outlines a theoretical framework and proven action plan for the attainment of the potential benefits of audio-visual coverage, arguing that technological advances, acknowledgement of legally enforceable rights and, above all, judicial recognition of courts' vested interest in facilitating coverage in order to promote greater public access and understanding of judicial proceedings, have led audio-visual coverage to be increasingly perceived as desirable.

  • It is the first book to comprehensively document and analyse the cameras in courts experiences which will broaden and enhance readers' understanding of the issue
  • Provides reader with access to valuable previously unpublished information
  • The book does not just document and analyse the issue - it outlines a persuasive and proven means for overcoming the impasse of the 'courts versus the media' debate.

Penguin Books Great Ideas: A Confession

RRP $14.99

Describing Tolstoy's crisis of depression and estrangement from the world, A Confession is an autobiographical work of exceptional emotional honesty. It describes his search for 'a practical religion not promising future bliss but giving bliss on earth'. Although the Confession led to his excommunication, it also resulted in a large following of Tolstoyan Christians springing up throughout Russia and Europe. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves ndash; and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives ndash; and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.
