About the Author:

Dr. Roberts is Assistant Profeddor at Roger Williams University, RI

Review:

"The study highlights the dialectic nature of media-society relationships: Ideologically dominant media, particularly one as interactive and participatory as the Internet, concurrently enable contestation and reproduction of dominant norms. Marginalized groups' engagement with such media can thus be at once resistive and complicit." - Prof. Kamille Gentles-Peart Roger Williams University"
