George McKay, professor of cultural studies, University of Salford, is reading Leah A. Lievrouw’sAlternative and Activist New Media (Polity, 2011). “Despite inevitably being instantly out of date on publication – no WikiLeaks, no social media in the Arab Spring – I find this book to be quite the best on the subject. My final-year alternative media students like it for its theoretical clarity and spot-on balance of accessibility and difficulty – and so do I. A great textbook. I wish I’d written it!”
