This book highlights how online networking offers potential for new forms of activist mobilizing, repertoires, participatory democracy, direct action, fundraising, and civic engagement. It calls for a re-conceptualization of some of the main tenets of contentious and electoral politics, which were originally constructed to describe and analyze face-to-face forms of mobilization, in order to more accurately analyze contemporary forms of protest, electoral processes, and civil society organizing.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Many people regard the present as a lull in political activism, certainly from the Left, although the Tea Party movement suggests that right-wing social movements are alive and well. This book challenges that assumption and suggests that the focus for organization has shifted to the Internet." -Highly Recommended in CHOICE. Review by Y. R. Magrass, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
