Promotional Information

"Ariadne Vromen's unique ten year study of GetUp is a terrific contribution to the field. This highly readable and multi-layered book penetrates critical questions about what makes the organisation and its campaigns tick, how they change over time, and what this means for citizen-based politics. Vromen's insightful work reminds us why attention to context is important and comprehensive analysis indispensable." (Alexandra Segerberg, Stockholm University, Sweden) "This is a tremendous book. Ariadne Vromen draws upon a full decade of research and observation of the Australian netroots powerhouse GetUp. The expansive depth and breadth of her research reveals something that no other scholar has been able to chart: how digital advocacy organizations learn, adapt, and change as they outgrow their initial novelty and carve out a niche in the political landscape. The book is a must-read for anyone interested how the internet is changing organized collective action." (David Karpf, George Washington University, USA) "This is an important and highly timely book that provides a unique insight into how digital technologies are democratizing the world of political campaigning and interest articulation. Through a rich comparative analysis of the new 'organizational hybrids' - GetUp, MoveOn and 38 Degrees - Vromen offers a powerful argument to show how these groups are challenging the established order and returning power to the grassroots." (Rachel Gibson, University of Manchester, UK)
