As well as providing definitions of defines new media and public activism, this chapter sets out the Marxist theoretical framework that will guide the rest of the book. In particular, it shows that any adequate account of new media and public activism must embed its arguments within how global capitalism operates through contradictory and irrational tendencies, and through relationships of exploitation.
