Hudson, Leila, Iskandar, Adel & Kirk, Mimi (dir.), Media Evolution on the Eve of the Arab Spring, New York, Palgrave Macmillan, 2014, 300p.

image-service_004Leading scholars of Arab media come together to offer unparalleled insight into the communication environment that preceded the political and societal ruptures that shook the Arab world 2010-2011. Examining the role of competing publics, the state’s ability to construct meaning, and social and political change in the region, they unsettle oversimplifications of much of the existing literature and examine numerous precipitating conditions, including, political stagnation, civil engagement, new media, rural and urban divides, Islamist blogospheres, video games, Turkish and Syrian dramas, mediated diplomacy, and diaspora.
