Activists, scholars, scholars—anyone drawn to anti-capitalist social activities and electronic resistance from below—will take advantage of interpreting Shantz and Tomblin’s arguments which are theoretically subtle, empirically rigorous and traditionally major. A lucid, compelling and provocative account of the potential for the electronic innovative spirit, the textual content units a truly excessive ordinary for debates within the social reviews of energy, wisdom and expertise. total, Cyber Disobedience constitutes an important and well timed contribution—a must-read for somebody serious about freedom, know-how, social justice and country repression within the twenty-first century.” —Dr. Heidi M.
