How did we get from Hollywood to YouTube? What makes Wikipedia so different from a traditional encyclopedia? Has blogging dismantled journalism as we know it?

Our media landscape has undergone a seismic shift as digital technology has fostered the rise of "participatory culture," in which knowledge is originated, created, distributed, and evaluated in radically new ways. The Participatory Cultures Handbook is an indispensable, interdisciplinary guide to this rapidly changing terrain. With short, accessible essays from leading geographers, political scientists, communication theorists, game designers, activists, policy makers, physicists, and poets, this volume will introduce students to the concept of participatory culture, explain how researchers approach participatory culture studies, and provide original examples of participatory culture in action. Topics include crowdsourcing, crisis mapping, grid computing, digital activism in authoritarian countries, collaborative poetry, collective intelligence, participatory budgeting, and the relationship between video games and civic engagement.

Contributors include: Daren Brabham, Helen Burgess, Clay Calvert, Mia Consalvo, Kelly Czarnecki, David M. Faris, Dieter Fuchs, Owen Gallagher, Clive Goodinson, Alexander Halvais, Cynthia Hawkins, John Heaven, The Jannissary Collective, Henry Jenkins, Barry Joseph, Christopher Kelty, Pierre Lévy, Sophia B. Liu, Rolf Luehrs, Patrick Meier, Jason Mittell, Sarah Pearce, W. James Potter, Howard Rheingold, Suzanne Scott, Benjamin Stokes, Thomas Swiss, Paul Taylor, Will Venters, Jen Ziemke

CHOICE Review

Packaging into one volume the range and uncertainty of how different individuals and groups use the online world is, of course, a significant challenge. This volume is necessarily uneven. There are pockets of provocative observations (e.g., do "hacktivists" contribute to political passivity?) and more mundane recitations (e.g., fan wikis are participative platforms). Particularly curious is the wide range of contributors--of the 40 authors, a quarter are outside the academy, among them a poet, a game designer, and a project manager for a particle physics grid. With such a wide range of contributors, the volume provides (often elliptical) takes on participatory activism, participatory creativity, and the need to rethink education. Still, overall, the collection includes essays that appear divorced from any central theories of participatory culture. Delwiche and Henderson (both, communication, Trinity Univ.) do attempt to situate participatory culture in an introductory chapter, but the discussion is mostly temporal. The book would have benefited from more breadth of theory; does Henry Jenkins really need to be cited by so many of the contributors? Regardless, the book serves as a solid entree into deeper thinking about participatory culture. Summing Up: Recommended. With reservations. Upper-division undergraduates, researchers/faculty, professionals. B. S. John Old Dominion University
