"Jones' book skillfully combines approaches from memory studies, communication and media studies, and reception studies to give insight into the interaction between individual memories and the social, cultural and political spheres. ... Jones' study presents a significant contribution to the field. ... an important and necessary contribution to the study of testimony and its (mass) mediation and remediation in memory culture." (Susanne C. Knittel, H Soz Kult, hsozkult,, March, 2016)

"The Media of Testimony combines original empirical analyses with the very latest memory studies scholarship. It is a fascinating and highly readable discussion of the way first-person narratives are mediated to produce a one-sided account of a still hotly-contested past, and its discussion of what constitutes 'authenticity' has implications extending well beyond its immediate context. An important book for anyone interested in how the past is reconstructed in the present." - Debbie Pinfold, University of Bristol, UK
