'It happens when a reporter dares to tell a story from the inside: to participate in the events at hand.  Sometimes undercover, and then to tell the tale from a distinct point of view rather than pretend to some ideal of objectivity.  It produces work that is not only highly entertaining but also more honest, more realistic, and much more revealing than conventional journalism.  It is a breed of reporting that Harper's Magazine has fostered to brilliant effect.
A collection of startling stories from celebrated authors (William T. Vollmann, Barbara Ehrenreich, Charles Bowden) and fresh new voices (Wells Tower, Jake Silverstein, Morgan Meis) alike, Submersion Journalism serves as a proclamation in favor of unsanctioned reporting in an age of managed "news" and PR spin.  The book is a defence of the radically first-person dispatch, filed from exactly those points of view where a reporter is not supposed to be.'
