From dance and graffiti to video and the Internet and from satirical prints and street theatre to culture-jamming, subversive song, performance art and underground radio, this book is a comprehensive analysis of all radical media and movements.The first part of the book explores social and cultural theory in order to show that radical media should be a central part of our understanding of media in history. The second part provides an historical and international analysis of radical media to illustrate their centrality and diversity. This section also includes consideration of ultra-rightist media as a key contrast case. The final part provides detailed case studies of the anti-fascist media explosion of 1974-75 in Portugal, Italy's long-running radical media, and radio and access video in the USA, and illegal media in the dissolution of the former Soviet bloc dictatorships.
