In this book, Chris Atton offers a fresh introduction to alternative media: one which is not limited to `radical' media, but can also account for newer cultural forms such as zines, fanzines, and personal websites.

Alternative Media:

  • Examines how and why people produce and use alternative media - to make meaning, to interpret, and to change the world in which they live
  • Encompasses a wide range of alternative media and draws on examples from both the United States and United Kingdom
  • Locates contemporary alternative media in their cultural, historical and political contexts
