Summary: This book explores the changing nature of democracy in light of dramatic changes in the media of mass communication: the Internet, the decline of network television news and the daily newspaper; the growing tendency to treat election campaigns as competing product advertisements; the blurring lines among news, ads, and entertainment. It explores such questions as: Does the Internet make it easier for citizens to find political information? Do today's highly competiti

"...remarkably good...What matters is that the contributions are of a consistently high standard. They are both up-to-the-minute and often of lasting value. Although some caught my eye as especially good and interesting, it would be invidious to pick out any for special treatment here. The volume as a whole is important and develops some interesting insights and arguments. If you are interested in communications and the future democracy then this is a useful and important book."
