Format: Paperback
This is another great contribution from Prof. Castells to understanding our changing social and political world. The content is most pertinent in a moment when, clearly, concepts such as right and left, political systems and their major actors, are utterly under-rated. Their steps are often against the majority interests and create critical conflicts. Citizens realize the mighty power of Internet, cells..... as tools to mobilize political wills, beyond classic party infrastructures, more and more inadequate. No doubt, beyond traditional participatory ways, Democratic systems will have to take into account the increasing social networks and new technologies as means to asses change in a new era. In short, the rules of the political game are, clearly, changing and nothing will be like before. Excellent, timely reading.

I cannot recommend this excellent title enough. Millions of people all across the world are connecting / banding together to create social movements of change. And the internet, like a modern day "Silk Road", has become the highway of trade and exchange...but this time it's a trade & exchange of ideas....

If you want a quick glimpse of the current pulse of the changing face of numerous societies all across the world...then this title is definitely for you....

This book is positively fascinating! I love the way he covers the techniques for social movements and the way these techniques relate to this old we use in everyday life. I would not have previously imagined how great a role social media could play in a social movement.
