The 2011 uprisings in the Middle East proved that democracy retains its appeal, even to people who have long lived without it. They also illustrated how, in a high-speed, media-centric world, conventional diplomacy has become an anachronism. Not only do events move quickly, but so too does public reaction to those events. The cushion of time that enabled policymakers to judiciously gather information and weigh alternatives is gone. Real-Time Diplomacy analyzes the essential, but often unhappy, marriage between diplomacy and new media, evaluating media's reach and influence, and determining how policy makers might take advantage of media's real-time capabilities rather than being driven by them.

Review:

"Carefully researched and written, this is a valuable study of the role of the changing global media environment on political behavior, including a discussion of the 2011 Arab world uprisings and the diplomatic challenges that both popular movements and media developments present to many governments, including ours. At a time when pundits and commentators offer differing theories on these events, the author gives us a balanced, sober and insightful account that provides specialists with new ways of thinking, and general audiences with a valuable overview. This book will be assigned reading for my students." - William A. Rugh, former US ambassador, visiting professor, Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, and author of Arab Mass Media

"Real-Time Diplomacy not only draws readers into the compelling narratives of personal sacrifice and collective risk during the Arab Spring, but it provides the broader context needed to really understand the political impact and implications of technology diffusion. Seib is an authority on public diplomacy, and his latest book is real-time social science at its best. Most important, for the policy makers, journalists, and interested public who don't want to just be spectators to current events, this book offers insight into the long-term digital media trends that will shape international relations in the years ahead." - Philip N. Howard, professor of Communication, University of Washington

"Real-Time Diplomacy is far more than an authoritative guide to understanding the role of social media in the Arab Awakening of 2011. It is about why and how new communication technologies have forever changed the relationship between politicians and publics. This book is simply unmissable reading for policy makers, informed citizens, and political activists to navigating the global networked politics of the 21st century." - Cristina Archetti, lecturer in Politics and Media, University of Salford

"This is all crucial perspective for budding diplomats. While they become aware of the acceleration of events enabled by social media, they need to also remember the dangers of acting without a fuller sense of what's going on."

Dallas Morning News

'Real-Time Diplomacy: Politics and Power in the Social Media Era offers several excellent contributions to bridge the practice of diplomacy with theories of technology and media change...It does so with the aid of carefully parsed stories from across the globe and history...[Seib shows that] the Arab Spring is important not in its isolation as a rare and important moment in recent history but rather in its integration with global networks of civil society and non-state actors...With several points of entry for students, theorists, and practitioners, Real-Time Diplomacy is well-timed and very necessary...The narratives traced in the analysis do the difficult work of detailing points of network convergence with new forms of political mobilization.'
