Mr. Ashley's book is a revision of his earlier volume, Essentials of Libel, published in 1948. It is a small book in which the author, a member of the Seattle Bar experienced in newspaper law, has attempted to provide the journalist and broadcaster with a handy check-list of the danger spots confronting them through the law of the press. It is, in the words of the author, a "Stop, Look and Listen handbook." Mr. Ashley has accomplished his purpose quite successfully.
