The World Affairs Councils of America and the
Tennessee World Affairs Council Invite You to Participate in A Teleconference
“Digital World War”
Thursday, December 14, 2017
1:00-1:30 p.m. CT.
December’s Cover to Cover will feature author Haroon Ullah on his new book, “Digital World War: Islamists, Extremists and the Fight for Cyber Supremacy,” on Thursday, December 14, at 1:00-1:30 PM Central Time.
In Digital World War, seasoned diplomat Haroon Ullah, with deep knowledge of Islamist politics and digital innovation, investigates the unprecedented impact of social media on the discourse of recent events in the Muslim World–from the Arab Spring and its aftermath to ISIS’s online recruitment.
While he identifies the roles of social media in these events and the use of the dark web, hacking, and digital attacks, he also reveals how political parties, corporations, and governments have learned to exploit digital tools to target and mobilize audiences, to ultimately achieve power and status.
See Ullah’s recent appearances on ABC’s 20/20 with Diane Sawyer, as a guest on CNN, and read his article on ISIS in the Daily Beast.
