about this item

In an age of PR, public protest and other forms of dissent have lost their meaning and impact. The intense media interest  in rioting and political violence,  as  well  as an  existing obsession  with youth culture, have led  to an  over-saturation and  misrepresentation  of  what these movements are about. Political protest has become a pantomime where activists are always villains, and therefore the politics of these groups are routinely ignored.  By identifying the ways in which publicity has helped and  hindered a wide range  of  movements,  Shooting Hipsters  will find  out the ways  in  which dissenting groups can thrive and survive  in a media-saturated age,  as  well  as  describing the common ways  that they can  be  undermined.
