Further reading: Who Invented the Newspaper?

This is the reference & further reading list for the article,
Who Invented the Newspaper?

There exists a rich and growing literature on the history of news and the newspaper. As a starting point, I highly recommend Andrew Pettegree’s, The Invention of News.
