about this item

From the Occupy movement in the Western world to the Arab Spring in the Middle East, the Internet and social media are changing the global landscape. China is next. Despite being a heavily censored society, China has over 560 million active Internet users, more than double that of the U.S.. China-watcher Liz Carter shows how the Internet in China is leading to a coming together of activists, ordinary people and cultural trendsetters on an unprecedented scale. News about protests and natural disasters, or gossip and satirical jokes, are virtually uncensorable and spread quickly through Weibo-the Chinese Twitter–and the Chinese Internet underground. Lively, ground-breaking and brilliantly researched, this book reveals a new side to the world’s largest country and is the must-read guide to its future and the future of the state, protest and censorship in the Internet age.
