Description - The Politics of Cyberspace by Chris Toulouse
The Politics of Cyberspace provides an overview of the impact of the World Wide Web on the political process. Chris Toulouse organizes the articles according to their theoretical approach - those who take up Habermas's concern with civil society and those who take up the postmodern critique of popular culture. The book covers key issues such as the potential for electronic democracy, the use of the Web by mainstream political parties, challenges to the First Amendment, inequalities of access, and new understanding of gender. It also calls for progressive intellectuals to embrace the Internet in their political struggles. Chris Toulouse, John Streck, David Resnick, Juliet Roper, Wayne McIntosh, Cynthia Cates, Tim Luke, Anna Sampaio, Janni Aragon, and Douglas Kellner.
