Abstract

Tunisian and Egyptian protesters famously made use of social media to rally supporters and disseminate information as the “Arab Spring” began to unfold in 2010. Less well known are ongoing local efforts to use social media and other forms of technology to prevent deadly outbreaks of violence. The Technology of Nonviolence describes and documents technology-enhanced efforts to stop violence before it happens in Africa, Asia, and the United States. Kristen Perrin finds that although the book leaves some unanswered questions, Bock does well to highlight phenomena that are recent, in flux, and difficult to quantify.
