Increasing attention is being paid to the political uses of the new communication technologies. Digital Democracy offers an invaluable in-depth explanation of what issues of theory and application are most important to the emergence and development of computer-mediated communication systems for political purposes.

The book provides a wide-ranging critical examination of the concept of virtual democracy as discussed in theory and as implemented in practice and policy that has been hitherto unavailable. It addresses how the Internet, World Wide Web and computer-mediated political communication are affecting democracy and focuses on the various theoretical and practical issues involved in digital democracy. Using international examples Digital Democracy attempts to connect theoretical analysis to considerations of practice and policy.

`Hacker and van Dijk present an insightful collection exploring the nature of digital democracy.... This book does much to demystify the overused terminology associated with digital democracy, and manages to aviod the hyperbole and utopian tendencies often evident within existing analysis of "cyberpolitics".... highly recommended' - Political Theory
