In the academic literature, Networks of Outrage and Hope has been much criticised for being more about hope than outrage: firstly, for the technological determinism on which the book grounds its premises, whereas a critical outlook that includes multinational corporations, such as Google, could clarify who actually runs the ‘Internet’. Secondly, for its one-dimensional, compulsory ‘Internet age’, in which ‘people’ actually means ‘users’ whose main fate rests in interacting with machines without objection or resistance.

The opening sentence of Manuel Castells’ latest book Networks of Outrage and Hope: Social Movements in the Internet Age. (Polity Press, 2012), sets the tone of the entire work: No one expected i. According to Castells, the answer is simple: these movements began on the Internet social networks and spread by contagion in a world of wireless communication, mobile media and the viral exchange of images and content. He argues that the Internet has created a ‘space of autonomy’ for the exchange of information and the sharing of feelings of collective outrage and hope.

Leading sociologist Manuel Castells examines new social movements, new forms of change and political democracy in the global network society  .

This book is an exploration of the new forms of social movements and protests that are erupting in the world today, from the Arab uprisings to the indignadas movement in Spain, and the Occupy Wall Street movement in the US. While these and similar social movements differ in many important ways, there is one thing they share in common: they are all interwoven inextricably with the creation of autonomous communication networks supported by the Internet and wireless communication.

In this timely and important book, Manuel Castells – the leading scholar of our contemporary networked society – examines the social, cultural and political roots of these new social movements, studies their innovative forms of self-organization, assesses the precise role of technology in the dynamics of the movements, suggests the reasons for the support they have found in large segments of society, and probes their capacity to induce political change by influencing people’s minds.

Based on original fieldwork by the author and his collaborators as well as secondary sources, this book provides a path-breaking analysis of the new forms of social movements, and offers an analytical template for advancing the debates triggered by them concerning the new forms of social change and political democracy in the global network society.

  • I love Mercedes
Its a good book. However, it's dense and repetitive.
  • Buge
I cannot recommend this excellent title enough. Millions of people all across the world are connecting / banding together to create social movements of change. And the internet, like a modern day "Silk Road", has become the highway of trade and exchange...but this time it's a trade & exchange of ideas....

If you want a quick glimpse of the current pulse of the changing face of numerous societies all across the world...then this title is definitely for you....

This book is positively fascinating! I love the way he covers the techniques for social movements and the way these techniques relate to this old we use in everyday life. I would not have previously imagined how great a role social media could play in a social movement.
