Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0714841773, Hardcover)Graphic Agitation 2 explores graphic protest in the digital age, in particular over the years since the Gulf War. The book deals with a range of protest imagery from hi-tech and low-tech to no-tech and is comprehensively illustrated with images ranging from lollipop wrappers to websites. Graphic Agitation 2 is a survey of social and political graphics since the early 1990s. It illustrates and contextualises work produced in relation to key themes such as: environmental movements; the rise of corporate power; branding; wars (e.g. in the Balkans and the Gulf War); and human rights - all of which have been prominent items in the news over the last few years. The graphic design projects discussed in this book are all of 'the digital age' but they are not all digital-based. The author deals with the impact of digital innovations on traditional methods of social and political protest and also looks at how they work together. This mix of media is both appealing and informative.

"This book follows on from Graphic Agitation, published by Phaidon in 1993, to look at a range of social and political graphics from the past decade." "The book begins with a survey of political and social graphics in the 1990s, and looks at how, and why, the nature of protest changed in that decade. In particular it examines the impact of the 'digital age', and the profound effect new technologies have had even on non-digital media. There follows a review of protest graphics from the 1960s, '70s and '80s, providing context and featuring groundbreaking images from around the world." "Reflecting the mix of agitational protest taking place today, Graphic Agitation 2 shows work by both professional designers and non-professional activists on the 'street'. It includes the latest digital media alongside more traditional graphic methods. Graphic Agitation 2 is a valuable resource for anyone with an interest in visual media, politics, and social history."--BOOK JACKET.
