Twitterocracy - Democracy Through Social Media
Looking back on history, for many who had lived in the 1700s, the signing of the Declaration of Independence was an important event in American history. It is symbolic through a commitment toward life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, along with how that pursuit to happiness includes our ability to be a part of the social media era as it exists today. This is especially true when looking at privacy, speech rights, and the use of social media. The way that our forefathers communicated wasn't so different than what we see today. Instead, it's the delivery that has changed. This includes the use of social media is changing the way we communicate, but more importantly, the way public officials are communicating and sending a message to the people they serve, as more than twenty different social media and leadership lessons for government can be found through the work of Abraham Lincoln.

A Social History of Contemporary Democratic Media
The last few decades have helped dispel the myth that media should remain driven by high-end professionals and market share. This book puts forward the concept of communications from below in contrast to the globalization from above that characterizes many new developments in international organization and media practices. By examining the social and technological roots that influence current media evolution, Drew allows readers to understand not only the Youtubes and Facebooks of today, but to anticipate the trajectory of the technologies to come. Beginning with a look at the inherent weaknesses of the U.S. broadcasting model of mass media, Drew outlines the early 1960s and 1970s experiments in grassroots media, where artists and activists began to re-engineer electronic technologies to target local communities and underserved audiences. From these local projects emerged national and international communications projects, creating production models, social networks and citizen expectations that would challenge traditional means of electronic media and cultural production. Drew's perspective puts the social and cultural use of the user at the center, not the particular media form. Thus the structure of the book focuses on the local, the national, and the global desire for communications, regardless of the means.

Preusseri Och Socialism
Den forsta upplagan av Oswald Spenglers stridsskrift Preussentum und Sozialismus kom ut i Tyskland 1919. En svensk oversattning, har atergiven i faksimil, gavs ut pa Chelius forlag tva ar senare under titeln Preusseri och socialism. For de flesta lasare torde termen preusseri vara synonym med kadaverdisciplin och despotiskt militarstyre. Spengler anvander emellertid begreppet for att beteckna vad han kallar preussarandan - en typiskt tysk, medfodd laggning som tar sig uttryck i egenskaper som pliktkansla och beredvillighet att uppoffra sig for det gemensamma basta. For Spengler ar denna preussaranda - till skillnad fran marxismen, som han kritiserar hart - liktydig med sann socialism. Spengler staller i Preusseri och socialism tva fundamentalt vasensskilda livsaskadningar mot varandra: a ena sidan den engelska liberalismen och a den andra den preussiska socialismen. Medan den engelska liberalismen praglas av langt driven individualism och hansynslos vinningslystnad betonar den preussiska socialismen samhorighet, solidaritet och folkgemenskap. Dessa bada synsatt ar oforenliga och kan inte samexistera. Beroende pa vilken ideologi som far overtaget, kommer makten i slutanden ytterst att vila antingen hos finansiella intressen eller hos stater. Spengler uppmanar mot den bakgrunden medborgare ur alla samhallsskikt att satta klassegoismen at sidan, anamma den preussiska socialismen och sluta upp i kamp mot den liberala varldsaskadningen, det inre Albion , som han menar utgor ett dodligt hot mot nationens fortbestand. Oswald Spengler (1880-1936), tysk historiker och filosof, ar mest kand for sin teori att civilisationer inte utvecklas linjart, utan cykliskt, och fods, blomstrar och dor pa ett satt som paminner om ett levande vasen. Spengler utvecklade teorin i sitt magnum opus Vasterlandets undergang som kom ut i tva volymer 1918 och 1922.

Social Movements, Memory and Media: Narrative in Action in the Italian and Spanish Student Movements
Cultural factors shape the symbolic environment in which contentious politics take place. Among these factors, collective memories are particularly relevant: they can help collective action by providing symbolic material from the past, but at the same time they can constrain people's ability to mobilise by imposing proscriptions and prescriptions. This book analyses the relationship between social movements and collective memories: how do social movements participate in the building of public memory? And how does public memory, and in particular the media's representation of a contentious past, influence strategic choices in contemporary movements? To answer these questions the book draws its focus on the evolution of the representation of specific events in the Italian and Spanish student movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Furthermore, through qualitative interviews to contemporary student activists in both countries, it investigates the role of past waves of contention in shaping the present through the publicly discussed image of the past.

Political Regimes and the Media in Asia
This book analyzes the relationship between political power and the media in a range of nation states in East and Southeast Asia, focusing in particular on the place of the media in authoritarian and post-authoritarian regimes. It discusses the centrality of media in sustaining repressive regimes, and the key role of the media in the transformation and collapse of such regimes. It questions in particular the widely held beliefs, that the state can have complete control over the media consumption of its citizens, that commercialization of the media necessarily leads to democratization, and that the transnational, liberal dimensions of western media are crucial for democratic movements in Asia. Countries covered include Burma, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.

Conflict, Terrorism and the Media in Asia
There are many different kinds of sub-national conflicts across Asia, with a variety of causes, but since September 11, 2001 these have been increasingly portrayed as part of the global terrorist threat, to be dealt with by the War on Terror. This major new study examines a wide range of such conflicts, showing how, despite their significant differences, they share the role of the media as interlocutor, and exploring how the media exercises this role. The book raises a number of issues concerning how the media report different forms of political violence and conflict, including issues of impartiality in the media's relations with governments and insurgents, and how the focus on the 'War on Terror' has led to some forms of violence - notably those employed by states for political purposes - to be overlooked. As the issue of international terrorism remains one of the most pressing issues of the modern day, this is a significant and important book which will interest the general reader and scholars from all disciplines.

Moral Panics, Social Fears, and the Media: Historical Perspectives
The media have always played a central role in organising the way ideas flow through societies. But what happens when those ideas are disruptive to normal social relations? Bringing together work by scholars in history, media and cultural studies and sociology, this collection explores this role in more depth and with more attention paid to the complexities behind conventional analyses. Attention is paid to morality and regulation; empire and film; the role of women; authoritarianism; wartime and fears of treachery; and fears of cultural contamination. The book begins with essays that contextualise the theoretical and historiographical issues of the relationship between social fears, moral panics and the media. The second section provides case studies which illustrate the ways in which the media has participated in, or been seen as the source of, the creation of threats to society. Finally, the third section then shows how historical research calls into question simple assumptions about the relationship between the media and social disruption.

Samizdat, Tamizdat, and Beyond: Transnational Media During and After Socialism
In many ways what is identified today as cultural globalization in Eastern Europe has its roots in the Cold War phenomena of samizdat ( do-it-yourself underground publishing) and tamizdat (publishing abroad). This volume offers a new understanding of how information flowed between East and West during the Cold War as well as the much broader circulation of cultural products that was instigated and sustained by these practices. By expanding the definitions of samizdat and tamizdat from explicitly political, print publication to include other forms and genres, this volume investigates the wider cultural sphere of alternative and semi-official texts, broadcast media, reproductions of visual art and music, and in the post-89 period, new media. The underground circulation of uncensored texts in the Cold War era serves as a useful foundation for comparison when looking at current examples of censorship, independent media and the use of new media in countries like China, Iran, and the former Yugoslavia.

Social Inequalities, Media, and Communication: Theory and Roots provides a global analysis of the intersection of social inequalities, media, and communication. This book contains chapter contributions written by scholars from around the world who engage in country- and region-specific case studies of social inequalities in media and communication. The volume is a theoretical exploration of the classical, structuralist, culturalist, postmodernist, and postcolonial theoretical approaches to inequality and how these theoretical discourses provide critical understanding of social inequalities in relation to narratives shaped by media and communication experiences. The contributors provide class and gender analyses of media and culture, engage theoretical discourses of inequalities and capitalism in relation to communication technologies, and explore the cyclical relationship of theory and praxis in studying inequalities, media, and communication.

Wars and Battles of the Roman Republic: The Military, Political and Social Fallout
Wars and Battles of The Roman Republic is no arid list of military engagements. In each listed battle, individual points of military or sociological interest are highlighted and examined, including the use of elephants as weapons, the first deployment of incendiaries, psychological warfare, the rise of the Roman navy, the suicidal but valiant devotio, ethnic cleansing, siege machinery, and tactical strategies. This is a dynamic exploration of Rome's inexorable and endless battle to win control of the Italian peninsula and the lands surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. It tells the fascinating tale of Rome's initial conflicts, her aggressive expansionism, and her progress from a settlement of agrarian hill-dwellers to one of the world's most powerful empires.

Television in Post-Reform China: Serial Dramas, Confucian Leadership and the Global Television Market
This book explores the political, economic, and cultural forces, locally and globally that have shaped the evolution of Chinese primetime television dramas, and the way that these dramas in turn have actively engaged in the major intellectual and policy debates concerning the path, steps, and speed of China's economic and political modernization during the post-Deng Xiaoping era. It intertwines the evolution of Chinese television drama particularly with the ascendance of the Chinese New Left that favors a recentralization of state authority and an alternative path towards China's modernization and China's current administration's call for building a harmonious society. Two types of serial drama are highlighted in this regard, the politically provocative dynasty drama and the culturally ambiguous domestic drama. The book also provides cross-cultural comparisons that parallel the textual and institutional strategies of transnational Chinese language TV dramas with dramas from the three leading centers of transnational television production, the US, Brazil and Mexico in Latin America, and the Korean-led East Asia region. The comparison reveals creative connections while it also explores how the emergence of a Chinese cultural-linguistic market, together with other cultural-linguistic markets, complicates the power dynamics of global cultural flows.

Social media serves as a space of liberation, but it also functions as an arena where competing forces vie over the minds of the young as they battle over ideas as important as the nature of freedom and the place of the rising generation in the political order. This book provides piercing insights into the ongoing struggles between people and power in the digital age.

The book is international and interdisciplinary, combining academic analysis and critical input from practitioners and researchers in areas such as cultural studies, destination marketing, heritage advertising, design, social history and commercial archaeology.

The comparison reveals creative connections while it also explores how the emergence of a Chinese cultural-linguistic market, together with other cultural-linguistic markets, complicates the power dynamics of global cultural flows.
