This timely book fills an important gap in the literature on the influence of the Internet and new media on Portuguese speaking African countries. Based on extensive field work throughout the region, the author examines the influence of the Internet in the transition to democracy in Africa, and asks whether there are new possibilities for popular activism to emerge from evolving communication environments and media systems.
