A new book has recently been published that I thought some of you might be interested in reading. It's all about how we can use technology for political activism. While many books have already been written about the tools and tactics available for activists online, this is the first book to attempt to map the field of digital activism in its entirety.
About the Digital Activism Decoded
Citizens around the world are using digital technologies to push for social and political change. Yet, while stories have been published, discussed, extolled, and derided, the underlying mechanics of digital activism are little understood. This new field, its dynamics, practices, misconceptions, and possible futures are presented together for the first time in Digital Activism Decoded.
Mary Joyce, former manager of the Obama New Media Operations team, is the editor of this anthology.
