Computer communication technologies, such as the Internet, are now integral to many democratic public spheres throughout the world. The question is how they impact the democratic process. Using several real world examples and the deliberative democracy theories of Rawls, Habermas, and Dryzek, this book looks at how technology has influenced the political process, and its effect on citizen power.
