STEVEN E. MILLER
Steven E. Miller* is a life-long political activist, organizing community and state-wide campaigns, promoting a broad range of public education outreach, and dealing with the interaction of technical issues with advocacy efforts. His writing style is conversational and informal while providing important insights into social change dynamics.
*No matter what your digital search tool says, Steven E. (for Edward) Miller who wrote Civilizing Cyberspace and Advocacy Organizing is NOT the Harvard -affiliated Defense Analyst also named Steven E. Miller who has written many more books, nor any of the other Steven E. Millers whose parents clearly read the same “Popular Names For Your Baby” articles. Even more emphatically, he is NOT the anti-immigrant Trump aide, Stephen Miller, who will hopefully do all his future writing from jail.
