Now I Know Who My Comrades Are: An On-the-Ground Look at the Lives of Internet Activists in China, Cuba, and Russia
This book is an insightful examination of the future critical battlegrounds between the Internet and governmental authority.
Emily Parker, an ex-State Department policy advisor, and former Wall Street Journal journalist, presents on-the-ground observations of how the Internet affects life in China, Cuba, and Russia in Now I Know Who My Comrades Are.
University students in China utilize the Internet to save the life of an attempted murder victim. Authorities in Cuba attempt to silence an online critic by creating seeds of doubt in her marriage. In Russia, a lone blogger aspires to become the most prominent opposition figure since the Soviet Union’s demise.
Authoritarian governments attempt to separate individuals from one another, but this is challenging in the age of Twitter and Facebook. One blogger said, “I know who my comrades are now.” Social media assists individuals in overcoming emotions of impotence, resulting in the emergence of a new type of citizen.
Emily Parker describes how well-known dissidents and regular folks utilize the Internet to expose injustices and challenge power. Now I Know Who My Comrades Are demonstrates the strength of community in the face of tyranny.

Carleigh was the ‘it’ girl in high school who everyone wanted to know. But suddenly, everything changed. She’s trapped working at her family’s cafe, living in a tiny apartment with no future possibilities. Travis was the class wallflower whom Carleigh dated briefly before she became famous. And before he dumped her and went away.
He’s returned now. And he’s no longer that nerdy adolescent. He’s stunning, bright, and… A multi-billionaire. They’ve clearly been planets apart. But that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about each other. When they reunite, the old sparks are hotter than ever.
Will they have another opportunity, or are their differences too significant to overcome…
