Bryan, Cathy, Tambini, Damian and Tsagarousianou, Roza, eds. (1998) Cyberdemocracy, technology, cities and civic networks. Routledge, London. ISBN 9780415171359
Developments in information technology and the internet are taking place at an almost bewildering pace. Such improvements, however, are believed to present opportunities for improving the responsiveness and accountability of political institutions and enhancing citizen participation. In Cyberdemocracy the theoretical arguments for and against "electronic democracy" and the potential of information and communication technology are closely examined. The book is underpinned by a series of case studies in the US and Europe that demonstrate the application of "electronic democracy" in a number of city and civic projects.
