The series of Arab uprisings collectively known as the Arab Spring is a flashpoint in history – perhaps the biggest we've seen since the collapse of the Soviet bloc 20 years ago. It's also been a stunning revolution in the way breaking news is reported around the world – and who controls the news.
In this book, NPR social media chief Andy Carvin – "the man who tweets revolutions" – offers a unique first-person recap of the Arab Spring. Part memoir, part history, the book includes intimate stories of the revolutionaries who fought for freedom on the streets and across the Internet – stories that would have never been recorded before the days of social media.
