About this book

This book introduces four waves of upsurge in digital activism and cyberconflict. The rise of digital activism started in 1994, was transformed by the events of 9/11, culminated in 2011 with the Arab Spring uprisings, and entered a transformative phase of control and mainstreaming since 2013 with the Snowden affair.

Reviews

'The book presents a high quality and original contribution to the field. The main argument of the book is unique, and synthesizes literature across a number of disciplines innovatively. We have seen several studies or individual articles that examine instances, or shorter trajectories of digital activism. This volume is unique in that it provides a thorough historical overview of digital activism and connects this historical overview to theoretical terms, perspectives and development.' Zizi Papacharissi, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA
