Handbook of Research on Political Activism in the Information Age
Editor: Ashu M. G. Solo (Maverick Technologies America Inc., USA)
ISBN13: 9781466660663; ISBN10: 146666066X; EISBN13: 9781466660670;
Technology and particularly the Internet have caused many changes in
political activism. Recent revolutions in many countries in the Middle
East and North Africa have started in large part due to social networking
Web sites like Facebook and Twitter. Social networking has also played a
role in protests and riots in numerous countries. The whistleblower Web
site Wikileaks has had a tremendous impact in exposing government
corruption. Mainstream media no longer has a monopoly on political
commentary as anybody can set up a blog or post a video online. Political
activists can network together online. Aspects of engineering, computer
science, mathematics can be applied to political activism.
Handbook of Research on Political Activism in the Information Age, edited
by Ashu M. G. Solo and published by IGI Global, includes 25 research
chapters from 39 researchers at universities and research institutions in
15 countries on different aspects of political activism with information
technology, engineering, computer science, or math. This book strongly
increases our understanding of methods for political activism in the
information age, the effectiveness of these methods, and tools for
analyzing these methods.
