Reviews

A thousand words are too few to cover the riches of this incredibly timely account of contemporary movements.
American Journal of Sociology

A must for those who are interested in how social movements communicate in the network society to realize changes of value in society.
International Journal of Public Opinion Research

"This is a well-argued and lively book that will be of great interest to anyone looking for an introduction to either post-2010 social movements or Castells' work."
Political Studies Review
