The second volume of Citizen Journalism: Global Perspectives seeks to build upon the agenda set in motion by the first volume, namely by: offering an overview of key developments in citizen journalism since 2008, including the use of social media in crisis reporting; providing a new set of case studies highlighting important instances of citizen reporting of crisis events in a complementary range of national contexts; introducing new ideas, concepts and frameworks for the study of citizen journalism; and evaluating current academic and journalistic debates regarding the growing significance of citizen journalism for globalising news cultures. This book expands on the first volume by offering new investigations of citizen journalism in the United States, United Kingdom, China, India and Iran, as well as offering fresh perspectives from national contexts around the globe, including Algeria, Columbia, Egypt, Haiti, Indonesia and West Papua, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Myanmar/Burma, New Zealand, Norway, Palestine, Puerto Rico, Russia, Singapore, Syria and Zimbabwe. -- taken from AmazonŽ.com.
