Is the Internet qualitatively different from the more traditional forms of the media?
Has the Internet demonstrated real potential to improve civil society through a wider provision of information, an enhancement of communication between government and citizen, or via better state transparency?
Does the Internet pose a threat to the coherence of civil society as people are encouraged to abandon shared media experiences and pursue narrow interests?
In authoritarian states, does the Internet function as a beacon for free speech or as another tool for propaganda?
This book will be of interest to students and scholars of International Politics, the Internet and civil society.
