What does it take to make democracy work and what should be asked of the press? To center a movement around a question is not to deny that the question needs an answer.

[This book] brings together professors with a deep grasp of their scholarly fields, journalism educators with time to study the experiment, and working journalists with the benefit of experience. -- Jay Rosen, from the foreword
