Description


Political activists with radical ideas often find themselves shut out of the mainstream news media. Writing Dissent: Taking Radical Ideas from the Margins to the Mainstream is designed for activists who want to take on that challenge. Based on the author's experience as a journalist, activist, and academic, this book offers insight into radical politics and mass media and then moves on to describe practical strategies for breaking into the mainstream. Illustrated by the author's own opinion columns published in daily newspapers, Writing Dissent explains how journalists work and how activists can successfully work with them.
