@ is for Activism: Dissent, Resistance and Rebellion in a Digital Culture

£19.99

Manufacturer: Pluto Press

Product Information

@ is For Activism examines the transformation of politics through digital media, including digital television, online social networking and mobile computing.
 
Joss Hands maps out how political relationships have been reconfigured and new modes of cooperation, deliberation and representation have emerged. This analysis is applied to the organisation and practice of alternative politics, showing how they have developed and embraced the new political and technological environment.
 
Hands offers a comprehensive critical survey of existing literature, as well as an original perspective on networks and political change. He includes many case studies including the anti-war and global justice movements, peer production, user created TV and 'Twitter' activism. @ is For Activism is essential for activists and students of politics and media.
 
Joss Hands is Senior Lecturer in Communication and Media Studies at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
