Fighting for Air examines how the demise of truly local journalism due to the rise of large conglomerates undermines the media's diversity and community-service mission across America, leaving individuals more disconnected from society than ever before.  Klinenberg's work includes study of local projects in Lawndale and other Chicago areas, where underdogs are fighting back.
