Product Description


«When the people formerly known as the audience employ the press tools they now have in their possession to inform one another, 'that's' citizen journalism. It is a global phenomenon because the means for doing it have been distributed to the population at large. Therefore our ideas about it have to be global, too. And we cannot afford to be sentimental about citizens or dismissive of what professionals do. Only a book like this can get that tough-minded conversation going the right way, which is the open way. In a word, the editors have succeeded.» (Jay Rosen, Department of Journalism, New York University). «A wonderful sampling of recent cases with a truly global scope; a happy combination of new stories and the top scholars in online journalism. Going beyond theory, this volume demonstrates the variety and impact of reporting by the people, for the people.» (Mindy McAdams, College of Journalism and Communications, University of Florida)
