Politics continues to evolve in the digital era, spurred in part by the accelerating pace of technological development. This cutting-edge Handbook includes the very latest research on the relationship between digital information, communication technologies and politics. Written by leading scholars in the field, the chapters explore in seven parts: theories of digital politics, government and policy, collective action and civic engagement, political talk, journalism, internet governance and new frontiers in digital politics research. The contributors focus on the politics behind the implementation of digital technologies in society today. All students in the fields of politics, media and communication studies, journalism, science and sociology will find this book to be a useful resource in their studies. Political practitioners seeking digital strategies, as well as web and other digital practitioners wanting to know more about political applications for their work will also find this book to be of interest.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`The Handbook of Digital Politics edited by Stephen Coleman and Deen Freelon is an incredibly rich and outstanding collection of essays on the ideologies, theories and methodologies that currently inspire the field of political science and communication. The editors brilliantly succeed in guiding us through this fascinating world - avoiding any rhetoric, or either a dystopian or utopian perspective on the subject. The articles collected here represent the golden section of the contemporary debate on digital politics.' -- Leopoldina Fortunati, Head of the Ph.D program in Multimedia Communication, University of Udine, Italy
`Coleman and Freelon have deftly edited a series of essays that help us transition to the next big thing in political communication-an internet connecting many people over many kinds of devices, making large volumes of data. Digital politics is no longer so much about what happens in your browser, but about what happens when your devices talk to each other on their own. This collection helps us to get ready to understand the new infrastructure of political life.' -- Philip N. Howard, University of Washington, US
