The idea of a counterculture - that is, a world outside of the consumer dominated one that encompasses us - pervades everything from the anti-globalisation movement to feminism and environmentalism. And the idea that mocking the system, or trying to 'jam' it so it will collapse, they argue, is not only counterproductive but has helped to create the very consumer society that radicals oppose." "In a lively blend of pop culture, history and philosophical analysis, Heath and Potter offer a clear picture of what a concern for social justice might look like without the confusion of the countercultural obsession with being different."--Jacket." ;
