Cyberactivism by Martha McCaughey

Book Description

Cyberactivism is a timely collection of essays examining the growing importance of online activism. The contributors show how online activists have not only incorporated recent technology as a tool for change, but also how they have changed the meaning of activism, what community means, and how they conceive of collective identity and democratic change. Topics addressed range from the Zapatista movement's use of the web to promote their cause globally to the establishment of alternative media sources like indymedia.org to the direct action of "hacktivists" who disrupt commercial computer networks. Cyberactivism is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the impact of the Internet on politics today.

Caveman Mystique by Martha McCaughey Caveman Mystique, Hardback (December 2007)

Pop-Darwinian claims about men's irrepressible heterosexuality are increasingly common, and increasingly common excuses for men's sexual aggression. This book traces such claims about the hairier sex through evolutionary science and popular culture. It shows how evolutionary discourse can get lived out as the biological truth of male sexuality.
