Review: This is the third book in a trilogy that follows Alternative Literature: A Practical Guide for Librarians (1996) and Alternative Media (2002) and it is the best one yet. Through the use of internet case studies Atton considers ‘a range of media projects, interventions and networks that work against, or seek to develop different forms of, the dominant, expected (and broadly accepted) ways of “doing” media’ (p. viiii). These include new social movements, radical online journalism, far-right media on the internet, sampling, copyright and P2P, alternative radio and the internet and fan culture.
Uncontrolled Keywords: media; online journalism; radicalism; P2P; copyright; alternative radio; internet; fan culture;
