Reviews

“Media, Margins and Civic Agency explores the extent to which media serve as catalysts or obstacles to civic activism and social transformation. … this is an engaging book on the challenges and opportunities in framing the groups at the margins afforded by social media and sometimes mainstream media.” (Weiwu Zhang, Communication Booknotes Quarterly, Vol. 47 (1), 2016)
