"The authors do an excellent job situating their study and theconcept of participation within the broader body of research andtheory on journalism, but also offer useful insights into thepractical realities of how journalists are addressing anincreasingly active audience in the newsroom today." (Journalism,23 February 2012) "Like its authors, half of whom are both journalists andscholars, the book is also a hybrid - on the one hand, it serves asa robust piece of empirical research and, on the other, it is anexcellent textbook for journalism students. This is evidently adeliberate device by the authors who wish to make a contribution toknowledge without alienating potential readers. The book is writtenin clear, familiar English resembling more of a journalistic stylethan an academic one, and each chapter ends with questions invitingthe reader (or lecturer) to discuss and probe issues. There is alsoan effective glossary which explains terms which may be unfamiliarto those starting out in the field." Intended primarily as a textbook - each chapter concludes withdiscussion questions - the volume provides an excellent startingpoint for examining the implications of new ways of collecting anddisseminating what we call news." (Choice, 1 October 2011)
