Free and irreverent journalism is one of the few defenses that democracy has against corrosive encroachment by the logic of national security under an indefinite state of emergency. This rich collection offers an indispensable overview of the challenges such journalism faces under pervasive electronic surveillance, and some of the technological and organizational strategies that may yet enable us to maintain an independent watchdog function despite these challenges. -- Yochai Benkler, Berkman Professor of Entrepreneurial Legal Studies, Harvard University Law School Edward Snowden's whistle-blowing has sparked one of the most contentious debates in recent memory. Making sense of its profound implications, this landmark collection assembles incisive perspectives on the changing nature of the press, communication technologies, and state surveillance - and how these shifts affect our daily lives. Anyone concerned about the future of democracy should read this important book. -- Victor Pickard, University of Pennsylvania This is a fascinating and provocative collection of essays that throws into sharp relief the challenge that mass surveillance presents to journalism, to engaged citizenship, and even to democracy. Anyone who wants to understand the significance of the Snowden disclosures should start here. -- Jameel Jaffer, Founding Director, Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, and former Deputy Legal Director, ACLU Journalism After Snowden brings together a remarkable group of contributors to reflect on the prospects for investigative reporting and democratic discourse in an age of ubiquitous electronic surveillance. I can think of no better or broader introduction to these critical issues. -- David Pozen, Professor of Law, Columbia Law School There is a new normal for journalism in the age of the surveillance state-a new normal hastened, if not created, by the Snowden leaks. This work contributes to those discussions by tapping the ideas of some of the world's top journalists, editors, and scholars. Together, they provide a rich and intellectually diverse set of perspectives on the implications of surveillance for journalism practice and for the role of journalism in democratic society. -- Jonathan Peters, William Allen White School of Journalism & Mass Communications, the University of Kansas A provocative compendium of issues confronting journalism as new technologies pose an array of threats to independent reporting.
