Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere: The New Global Revolutions by Paul Mason
With over fifteen percent of the Arab world and approaching one seventh of the global population on Facebook, the potential role of social media in revolutionary upheavals is huge. Mason illustrates how the parallel developments of mobile phone technology and the internet have permeated deep into much of society, from texting slum dwellers to illiterate doormen watching Youtube via bluetooth. The semi-causal relationship between disaffected students organising protests through social media, and poverty-stricken slum dwellers taking to the streets in Egypt is detailed here too.

We are blessed that the BBC, for all the criticisms, still employs journalists whose logic and unfailing inquisitiveness brings us such analysis. One feels as if they are present at the rallies, occupations and riots that Mason describes.
The anecdotal tales he provides should remind anyone who participated in any kind of popular resistance in the past decades of the energy and hope one finds and feels at such events. These are the stuff that makes one join such movements.
