    Abstract:
    In June 2016, Mohamed Zayani was awarded the “Global Communication and Social Change Best Book Award” from the International Communication Association. As Associate Professor of Critical Theory, Director of the Media and Politics Program, and Research Fellow at the Centre for International and Regional Studies, all at the Georgetown University (Qatar), Zayani is well-placed and well-equipped to deliver a study that explores the role of the ‘digital’ in social movements and politics during the Arab Spring. Zayani provides a comprehensive consideration of history, structures of governance, demographics, resistance, and watershed events, interwoven with the continuum of growth in information and communication technologies (ICTs).
