Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0973349948, Paperback)

“Autonomous Media is a bold and terrific contribution to media activists’ thinking and practice. Langlois and Dubois have captured a number of the most intense communication developments and debates within the current global social justice/altermondialiste move-ments. Like the most promising projects at the present time, they constantly combine local and global issues: low power radio, open publishing, blogging, culture-jamming and more. They provide solid fuel for the fire that continues to burn in Québec, in Canada, and across the planet.” — John Downing, author of Radical Media

"Autonomous media activists deploy their weapons of choice - video cameras, spray cans, blogs, laptops - to liberate “meaning-making” from PR specialists and corporate board rooms. As they engage, connect, and project the voices of people around the world who are demanding freedom and justice, they crack open spaces in which social movements can grow and genuine democracy can flourish." — Naomi Klein, author of No Logo

“An exciting collection of essays examining the efforts of communities and social move-ments to appropriate media technologies. Autonomous Media: Activating Resistance and Dissent explores vital issues such as re-creating communication and information technologies, re-inventing democracy, and re-designing local and global net-works. Written by media activists, this book is living proof that the construction of knowledge is not restricted to academia; the editors and contributors of Autonomous Media are genuine organic intellectuals producing creative, solid, and significant knowledge from the heart of social change communication initiatives.” — Clemencia Rodriguez author of Fissures in the Mediascape

Includes essays from Scott Uzelman, Tom Liacas, Andrea Schmidt, David Widginton, Dawn Paley, the editors, and more. With an afterword by Dorothy Kidd.
