About the Author

Chris Peters caught the hockey bug while growing up on Chicago's South Side and traveling from rink to rink with his dad to watch the Chicago Blackhawks. He played the sport throughout his youth and managed to turn his passion for the game into a career, not as a player, but as a writer. Peters has written for numerous publications and websites and has published three other books on hockey. He currently covers the NHL, NHL Draft, and hockey prospects across the globe for ESPN. Peters resides in North Liberty, Iowa, with his wife and two children.


'Rethinking Journalism is a significant collection of essays, by distinguished scholars of journalism studies, which focuses on the structural changes which are transforming every aspect of journalism. The "rethink" on offer here is fundamental, thought-provoking, but also eloquent. Reviewers risk running short of superlatives.'Bob Franklin, Cardiff University, UK
'Avoiding hyperbolic prophecies of either salvation or doom for the news media, the well-informed insights in this outstanding collection repeatedly bring us back to the fundamental importance of trust in sustaining the social relevance of journalism. As structures are transformed and social roles transposed, the grounded context provided by these top journalism studies scholars is much needed and most welcome.'Jane B. Singer, University of Iowa, USA

'..the indeed packed with valuable arguments and intricate insights from a very qualified range of American and European scholars. Rethinking or not, this is a highly valuable collection if one wishes a broad overview of the current debates within academia on the state of journalism.' Henrik Bodker, Digital Journalism

"Rethinking Journalism delivers on its title - it offers a sound argument for the need to redefine journalism at its core: What makes something 'journalism' in today's changing media landscape? If we unchain journalism from its paradigms, what should the emerging structure look like? Each chapter presents a different vision and although consensus may not be possible, the book offers a starting point from which we can begin to build an invigorated news sphere with trust and truth at its core." - Amber Hinsley, Journalism
