This insightful, eloquent and entertaining anthology paints a compelling portrait of Canada and Canadian journalism in a rapidly changing world. It brings together thirty years of the prestigious James M. Minifie Lecture, at the University of Regina's School of Journalism.

With media industries in crisis and the democratic craft of journalism in peril, this is also the chronicle of the reinvention of Canada, and of Canadian journalism, over the last three decades.

We designate it here as the title for our collection to acknowledge the importance of tradition, particularly the democratic tradition so deeply rooted in the profession's history. We use it also to recognize thirty years of the Minifie Lectures, the views of thirty leading journalists and a central paradox of journalism: that there is no such thing as the `final word' but that every end, every piece of filed copy provides our public dialogue with a new beginning.
