About the Book :

The 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 Loewensteins 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 the restriction of information in these countries and how bloggers are leading the charge for change.The book also 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 in 2010 and 2011.The Blogging Revolution is a superb examination of the nature of repression in the twenty-first century and the power of brave individuals to overcome it.
