            Antisocial Media: How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            If you wanted to build a machine that would distribute propaganda to millions of people, distract them from important issues, energize hatred and bigotry, erode social trust, undermine respectable journalism, foster doubts about science, and engage in massive surveillance all at ...once, you would make something a lot like Facebook. Of course, none of that was part of the plan. In this fully updated paperback edition of Antisocial Media, Siva Vaidhyanathan explains how Facebook devolved from an innocent social site hacked together by Harvard students into a force that, while it may make personal life just a little more pleasurable, makes democracy a lot more challenging. It's an account of the hubris of good intentions, a missionary spirit, and an ideology that sees computer code as the universal solvent for all human problems. And it's an indictment of how social media has fostered the deterioration of democratic culture around the world, from facilitating Russian meddling in support of Trump's election to the exploitation of the platform by murderous authoritarians in Burma and the Philippines. Both authoritative and trenchant, Antisocial Media shows how Facebook's mission went so wrong.

            Marvel comics are the nearest thing modernity has produced to a holy epic, a blockbusting, record-shattering pop-cultural cosmology that echoes our deepest hopes and fears. NYT comics critic Douglas Wolk has read them all. This is what they add up to.

            Smartphone Filmmaking: Theory and Practice introduces readers to mobile, smartphone and pocket filmmaking, providing a source of inspiration for outlining creative practices and principles on how to produce your first film and distribute your project via social media. Filmmaker a...nd academic Max Schleser traces the development of mobile filmmaking over a decade from its early experimentation to films screened at international film festivals, such as Sundance or Berlin International Film Festival. Unlike the the how-to guides currently on the market, this book goes beyond technical elements and focuses on the stories that were told and how they were created. Schleser follows the well-cited and established framework of Bill Nichols' documentary theory, to introduce readers to different documentary modes, and more recently, the emerging area of creative practice and scholarship. Included are interviews with internationally renowned mobile and smartphone filmmakers, including Benoit Labourdette and Susy Botello, sharing their inspirational work, along with a dedicated resource section to illustrate how mobile, smartphone and pocket filmmaking can be used as a form of creative engagement for youth councils, community groups, public and educational institutions.
