“Natalie Fenton, professor of media and communications at Goldsmiths, University of London, has written an important, engaging and timely book of great relevance to academic and activist audiences alike. In seven chapters, she suggests that ‘[c]laims for the extension and reinvention of activism through digital media need to be considered in the context of the material social and political world of inequality, injustice, corporate dominance and the financialization of everything.’ (19).”
