I am one of the writers on this book. It was around two years ago when I was still carrying Qiya in my belly. Together with Ignatius Haryanto, we made a research on media alternative in Indonesia, the trend of alternative media amid the mainstream media; the policies of media issues, such as press and law broadcasting law. We have box-sections on two media alternative projecst in Indonesia and I wrote about community radio in Yogyakarta; Balai Budaya Minomartani. I remember the discussion I had with them was so inspiring.

The book is a result of a research project covering eight countries in South and South East Asia examining the role and impact of alternative media. For further information (you probably want to buy, please check: http://www.amic.org.sg/publication/files/mediapluralism.htm)
