"The significance of this book for the current ongoing academic debates about the role of new communication technologies in facilitating democratization in authoritarian and repressive contexts is one of the major strengths of the book. In addition, this book is an excellent example of how people may collectively speak up even when the outcome of such collective action is unclear. Very well structured and well written, Bullets and Bulletins: Media and Politics in the Wake of the Arab Uprisings is an essential reading for not only scholars focused on Arab world, but also for anyone who cares about the relationship between media and politics in nondemocratic contexts."
