Reviews

“Crossroads in new media, identity and law offers a unique perspective on how identity politics are unfolding in the online world. … As cell phones start to appear more like human appendages and ‘selfie’ entering our dictionary, there is no doubt that the ICTs have brought about rapid and dramatic changes to our society. This book is a solid attempt at explaining some of the changes we are undergoing today.” (Azra Rashid, Information, Communication & Society, Vol. 21 (12), 2018)


'With critical approaches now well established in many communications programs, this book provides invaluable first-person narratives of the struggle to secure critical communication scholarship, and the ongoing challenges it presents for researchers, activists, and policy-makers worldwide.' - Terry Flew, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
