About the book:
Alternative Media in Canada challenges the notion of what media is, its role in policy and society, and why it matters to everyone who consumes mass media. This path-breaking volume gets to the heart of this question by focusing on the three interconnected dimensions that define alternative media in Canada: structure, participation, and activism.

Kirsten Kozolanka is an associate professor in the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University in Ottawa. Co-authors Patricia Mazepa and David Skinner are both associate professors in the Department of Communication Studies at York University in Toronto.
