Social media has reshaped the way societies engage in politics and war across the Muslim world. From ISIS’ use of social media to recruit to its role in the Arab Spring the Internet has become a site of conflict. In his new book, Haroon Ullah examines the unprecedented impact of social media across the region addressing both its democratic revolutionary impact as well as how it has been co-opted by religious conservatives and extremists.

Dr. Haroon Ullah is Chief Strategy Officer for the Broadcasting Board of Governors. A former senior advisor to the U.S. Secretary of State, with a special portfolio on digital transmedia strategy and countering violent extremism, he is a Peabody TV Award recipient, an Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University, and a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
