Modem Nation: The Handbook of Grassroots American Politics Online by Charles Bowen

Just as talk radio influenced the elections of 1994, the Internet is revolutionizing politics today. With 14,000 people per day signing on to commercial online services such as CompuServe and America Online, and millions surfing the Internet, Americans now have direct access to the elected officials who speak for them. They're online debating issues, campaigning for their candidates, and supporting special interests.

Charles Bowen offers readers an overview of the way politics works in the wired world, and explains how to become a cyber-activist, who's hot online and why, what the major issues are, and where the key players can be reached. He also provides:


    An "organization chart" to the developing online political system.

    Access to all branches of government, special interest groups, and political parties via Internet or the Web.

    Informative sidebars of political commentary, issues, and online tips.

    A directory of who's who on the Net.

    Special sections on news, consumer advocacy, and business.


Modem Nation is everything users need to wire up and be heard.
