"What is the power of journalism in an era of social media? Power and Loss in South African Journalism examines this important question and makes a ringing call to re-imagine the media for the twenty-first century." Ferial Haffajee, Associate Editor, Daily Maverick

"Glenda Daniels takes sophisticated theoretical turns to recuperate the idea that the media ought not to reinforce existing patterns of power and domination, but instead question the social order to mediate for a just and equal society. A must-read for scholars, students, policy makers and journalists trying to understand complex, disruptive changes in the media." Tawana Kupe, Vice-chancellor and Principal, University of Pretoria

Journalist and media freedom activist Glenda Daniels is Associate Professor in Media Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand.
