Industry Reviews

'Original and intriguing...[alternative media] are very often to be found sparking the earliest stages of the news cycle and of political and cultural movements, as well as fuelling the dynamics of these processes as they develop. Atton makes a convincing case for treating these media with all due seriousness' - John Downing, University of Texas at Austin
