The MNLA, Social Media, and the Malian Civil War
This book has been well over two years in the making, and it would not have been possible without the contributions of a large number of people. First, I would like to thank Dr. Sam Cherribi and other faculty at Emory University for guiding me through the process of moving from hypothetical ideas to completed chapters; this work could not have been completed without you. Second, I owe a great deal to the members of the Carter Center’s Independent Observer team for introducing me to the ongoing conflict and peace process in Mali, and especially to Dr. John Goodman, who encouraged me to “wander off into the weeds” in my search to better understand events in Mali. My wandering eventually brought me to this book. Also at the Carter Center, Dr. Frédéric Deycard pointed me toward excellent scholarship on northern Mali’s Tuareg community. Finally, I want to thank my father for his Excel wizardry, my mother for reading through the entire manuscript, and all of my family for listening as I talked about the MNLA and Mali for hours on end. I could not have done it without you.
