Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a special focus on recent elections, this resource explains the social relevance of online democracy through various case studies. Among the topics explored are the emergence of online voting; how the Internet has drawn youth back into politics and the reinvention of political action; online privacy and how it will affect Internet politics; the common mistakes of Net activists and how to avoid them; and propaganda, hacking, and the dark side of online politics. Also addressed is how the Gore Democrats and the Bush Republicans pushed the Internet envelope during the presidential campaign.

Book News Annotation:

Browning (associate editor for Federal Computer Week) presents the second edition of this nonpartisan guide to using the Internet as a research and communications medium in the political process. Topics include grassroots organizing, campaigning and fundraising; organizing local, state, and national campaigns; the future of online voting; finding and communicating with key policy makers, the media, and organizations online; political forums; resources on the Web; and some of the drawbacks to online politics. For those interested in the merging of computers and politics, and those seeking practical information on the use of the Internet to learn about politics and advance political causes.
