Editorial Reviews


"Digital Media and Democracy's distinctive value lies in Boler's effort to balance traditional scholarly issues with more practical, activist concerns.... This volume offers a rare engagement with decidedly practical political concerns, addressed it seems, as much to activists as to academics. ... Useful and insightful."
Michael A. Xenos, Information Communication and Society

"Digital Media and Democracy is an essential resource for scholars and students of the interfaces, synergies, and interstices between democracy, politics, media, and activism."
Mark Hayes, Media International Australia

"An ideal introduction to tactical media. All the chapters come from academics and activists who have made significant contributions to the field. The editing of the collection excels at putting these authors in dialogue, often referencing and responding to each other's ideas. The reflexivity of the book opens up more questions than it answers--exactly the task of a book that will be a great inspiration for the next wave of media activists."
Fenwick Robert McKelvey, Canadian Journal of Communication

"Digital Media and Democracy shows how voices of dissent can come from many different quarters as people utilize the resources they have available in new and innovative ways."
David Stuart, Online Information Review
