Media and Protest Logics in the Digital Era: The Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong

Author(s): Lee, Francis L.F., Joseph Chan

Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2018, pp. 288

Examines how digital media transformed the largely spontaneous movement into a campaign of collective action, with a central organization articulating clear policy demands as a result of a process of 'bottom up' debate and organization. The book covers the role of conventional as well as digital media, and draws on surveys of protesters, wider public opinion surveys and analysis of both conventional and social media platforms content.
