About the Book

Digital Democracy considers how technological developments might combine with underlying social, economic and political conditions to produce new vehicles for democratic practice.

The growth of new Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) such as the Internet, alongside growing concerns about the failure of advanced societies to live up to the democratic idea, has produced much interest in the prospects for a digital democracy.

This book will provide invaluable reading for those studying social policy, politics and sociology as well as for policy analysts, social scientists and computer scientists.

Reviews

'Barry Hague's and Brian Loader's volume on digital democracy is an excellent exercise in revisiting democratic practice in view of a new 'network' society. - Lisa Tsaliki, The European Journal of Communication Research
