Cyberactivism: Online Activism in Theory and Practice
Edited by Martha McCaughey and Michael D. Ayers
Cyberactivism is a timely collection of essays examining the growing importance of online activism. The contributors show how online activists have not only incorporated recent technology as a tool for change, but also how they have changed the meaning of activism, what community means, and how they conceive of collective identity and democratic change. Topics addressed range from the Zapatista movement’s use of the web to promote their cause globally to the establishment of alternative media sources like indymedia.org to the direct action of “hacktivists” who disrupt commercial computer networks. Cyberactivism is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the impact of the Internet on politics today.
