Review quote

"Online technologies help us re-imagine contemporary forms of journalism and news storytelling. This outstanding volume cuts through the hype to present important insights on citizen journalism, through an array of case studies drawn as citizens around the world become key players in the sociology of news. This is an essential and compelling read for students, scholars and all those interested in what the future holds for journalism." (Professor Zizi Papacharissi, Department of Communication, University of Illinois at Chicago) "This book puts the latest developments in citizen media into global perspective. Anyone who follows this trend will gain new insights - and far from losing momentum, this trend is gaining strength." (Professor Dan Gillmor, Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication, Arizona State University) "Thorsen and Allan have gathered a compelling set of narratives and arguments that together make a powerful case for the role of citizens in the business of reporting crises around the world, a task that has long been reserved for the professional journalist. This is no mere celebration, however - the volume engages with the limits of citizen reporting, the better to place it within existing and emerging forms of journalism practice."
