My book series with Oxford University Press will publish five new titles in 2018.
Francis L. F. Lee and Joseph M. Chan’s fascinating, empirically-grounded account of the Umbrella Movement: Media and Protest Logics in the Digital Era: The Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong.
Ben Epstein’s sweeping and beautifully-written evolutionary account of 300 years U.S. political development, revealing the technological, behavioural, and political factors that lead to political communication change: The Only Constant Is Change: Technology, Political Communication, and Innovation Over Time.
Taina Bucher’s hugely rich conceptual take on the role of algorithms in shaping sociality and connectivity: If…Then: Algorithmic Power and Politics.
Chris Anderson’s strikingly original analysis of journalism, which examines “how data has been mobilized, as a form of factual evidence, over the course of American journalism’s history”: Apostles of Certainty: Data Journalism and the Politics of Doubt. (Available for pre-order soon).
Florian Schneider’s highly novel take on a previously neglected aspect of the internet in China—its role in constructing and projecting national identity: China’s Digital Nationalism. (Available for pre-order soon).

And finally. I’d also like to take this opportunity to issue a call for book proposals in the area of news and journalism. If you’re working on a book in this area, drop me a line.
