Blogging Revolution by Antony Loewenstein
Book DescriptionThe Blogging Revolution is a colourful and revelatory account of bloggers around the globe who live and write under repressive regimes many of them risking their lives in doing so. Antony Loewenstein's travels take him to private parties in Iran and Egypt, internet cafes in Saudi Arabia and Damascus, to the homes of Cuban dissidents and into newspaper offices in Beijing, where he discovers the ways in which the internet is threatening the rule of governments. Through first-hand investigations, he reveals the complicity of Western multinationals in assisting the restriction of information in these countries and how bloggers are leading the charge for change. This fully updated new edition of the book reveals some of the key players of the Arab Spring and how years of organising, web dissent and bravery led to momentous changes in US-backed dictatorships across the Middle East. The Blogging Revolution is a superb examination about the nature of repression in the twenty-first century and the power of brave individuals to overcome it.

Books By Author Antony Loewenstein
Disaster Capitalism, Paperback (January 2017)
How Capitalism makes a fortune from disaster, poverty and catastrophe
For God's Sake, Paperback (July 2013)
Four of Australia's most interesting religious -- and anti-religious -- thinkers come together to ask and answer the big questions, such as: What is the nature of the universe? What is a good life? How do we account for evil? and Where do we find hope?
Left Turn, Paperback (May 2012)» View all books by Antony Loewenstein
Left Turn shows why the Left should be taken seriously. It is neither a policy document for a political party or a comprehensive list of ways to improve Australia. The essays are passionate, relevant, radical, controversial and topical; voices that are dying to be heard in an increasingly barren, media landscape.
