Book reviewing in newspapers and magazines has faced pressures
that have often undermined good criticism: an overwhelming number
of books, a need for funding, a complex relationship with publishers,
and the inherent difficulty of being accurate and fair. As the field
moves online, cyber-reviewers will face many of these same pressures.
Can we create new and better traditions--or will the new media repeat
the failings of the past?
Gail Pool has been a columnist, reviewer, and review editor for many

essays have appeared in such publications as the New York Times,
Columbia Journalism Review, and the Chronicle of Higher Education.
