From the Lines of Dissent is an anthology of select articles, comment pieces and academic analysis originally commissioned for Media Diversified's online platform, covering politics, literature, sexuality, education, religion, media and much more. These writings deal not only with specific current events but with the larger political and socioeconomic issues that shape contemporary global society, ensuring their continued relevance for readers.
The book also features a foreword by leading journalist Gary Younge of the Guardian who said:
"There is a sharp intelligence here and some crisp critiques. But it is the fearlessness to take on the dominant narratives - of race among others - in ways that are both playful and polemic that are the most striking."
The book aims to bring about positive change in journalism by introducing readers to perspectives outside the conventional commentariat.
