By Mohammad-Munir Adi

The unrests, riots, revolutions, and civil wars throughout the Arab Spring have undoubtedly initiated a series of chain reactions on Arab and African soil. The research in this book analyzes the use of the Internet and social media platforms in Tunisia, Egypt, and Syria, in order to clarify the relevance to the Arab Spring uprisings.
