9780521800679: Information and American Democracy: Technology in the Evolution of Political Power (Communication, Society and Politics)

To provide a comprehensive evaluation of the internet in American democracy, Bruce Bimber sets the contemporary information revolution in historical context, asserting that past developments in American history offer important lessons for understanding how the internet is affecting politics. He examines how citizens and organizations use it for political purposes and is especially interested as to whether new technology is making Americans more engaged in their government. This study about the internet and politics combines historical and survey analysis with case studies of political events.

Review:

"Bimber offers a thesis that is finely tuned and evidence that is fascinating in its in-depth examination of the use of new technology by groups. Information and American Democracy is an important book, one that should be read by every student of political communication as well as by those only more casually interested in the political implications of new technology." Political Science Quarterly

"Information and American Democracy has the virtues of careful scholarship, impressive consstruction of argument, and a close eye to the detail of political affairs...its referencing and methodology are exemplary." American Journal of Sociology

"Bimber judiciously argues that changes in core technology have organizational and behavioral consequences. Avoiding technological determinism, he makes a convincing case.... Highly recommended." Choice

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book assesses the consequences of new information technologies for American democracy in a way that is theoretical and also historically grounded. The author argues that new technologies have produced the fourth in a series of information revolutions in the US, stretching back to the founding. Each of these, he argues, led to important structural changes in politics. After re-interpreting historical American political development from the perspective of evolving characteristics of information and political communications, the author evaluates effects of the Internet and related new media. The analysis shows that the use of new technologies is contributing to post-bureaucratic political organization and fundamental changes in the structure of political interests. The author s conclusions tie together scholarship on parties, interest groups, bureaucracy, collective action, and political behavior with new theory and evidence about politics in the information age.
