This one-volume encyclopedia features around 250 essays on the varied
experiences of social movement media over the planet in the 20th and
21st centuries. The guiding principles have been to ensure
- that experiences from the global South are given voice;
- that women are properly represented among contributors;
- that the wide spectrum of communication formats is included;
- that further reading is provided where relevant;
- and that some examples are provided of repressive social movement
media, not exclusively progressive ones.

Thematic essays address selected issues such as human rights media,
indigenous peoples' media, and environmentalist media, and on key
concepts widely used in the field such as alternative media, citizens'
media, and community media. The encyclopedia engages with all
communication media: broadcasting, print, cinema, the Internet, popular
song, street theatre, graffiti, and dance. The entries are designed to
be relatively brief with clear, accessible, and current information.
Students, researchers, media activisits, and others interested in this
field will find this to be a valuable resource.
