How Internet Radio Can Change the World: An Activist's Handbook

from an email from Eric Lee
Nine years ago I wrote a book called "The Labour Movement and the Internet: The New Internationalism." I wrote it at a time when unions -- some unions -- were just beginning to use email and the web. The website which all of you know, LabourStart, grew out of one which I built to accompany publication of that book.

Today I'm pleased to let you know about my new book, "How Internet Radio Can Change the World: An Activist's Handbook".

This book introduces the subject of internet radio, goes into the brief history of the technology (created by social change activists, originally), and then gives several brief reports from the front lines, including the Workers Independent News Service and Air America in the USA, Radio B92 in Yugoslavia, and FreeNK internet radio, created by North Korean dissidents. There's a full chapter on the experience of Radio LabourStart, as well as appendices spelling out to listen to -- and broadcast -- Internet Radio.

For more details about the book, and to order your copy securely online, please go to:

Every copy of the book that is sold supports LabourStart's news and campaigning activities.

Please spread the word. Thanks.

Eric Lee
