Cyberdemocracy: Technology, Cities and Civic Networks
Roza Tsagarousianou, Damian Tambini, Cathy BryanISBN: 0415171350;
Cyberdemocracy is a study of the potential for "electronic democracy" through the examination of case studies in US and European cities and civic projects. It aims to strike a balance between enthusiastic and dismissive approaches to "electronic democracy." The authors consider the impact of new technology with regard to the history of broadcasting and communications technology--in particular, the ways in which the principles and requirements of public service and universal access will, or will not be maintained. This is a vigorous contribution to a vital debate about the state of democracy and the impact of communications technology. It will be essential reading for both students and policy makers.
