Product description


""The collection should be of interest to academics, policymakers, and the NGO groups (environmental, health, and women's) interested in exploring the many facets of electronic democracy. . . its lists of extensive on-line resources, allows it to serve well as a supplementary text for diverse courses on the social and policy implication of ICTs." --Leslie Regan Shade, Univ. of Ottawa for "Canadian Journal of Communication, Vol. 24, 1999."


This text examines the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and their consequences for political institutions, and assesses critically the concept of an emergent electronic democracy. The first section discusses the concepts and issues of "Electronic Democracy" with chapters on democracy and cyberspace, local democracy, global control and interactive ICTs. In the second section, entitled ICTs and the state, the chapters examine the impacts and implications of televising the British "House of Commons", the effects of ICTs on political parties, and closed circuit television. The final section discusses ICTs and the citizen with chapters covering democracies online, strengthening communities in the information age and the community network. This book provides a source for those studying social policy, politics and sociology as well as for policy analysts, social scientists and computer scientists.
