Reviews

"The Internet is tied to initiatives aimed at democratizing governance in order to empower organizations in a post-bureaucratic era. This volume brings together a complementary array of international scholars to provide a theoretically rich understanding of the potential of new paradigms and practices. This is must reading for anyone with a serious interest in the structures and dynamics of organizations." - William Dutton, Professor of Internet Studies, Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, UK

"This is a valuable contribution on an issue that is only going to get more and more important as time goes on. It makes for a thought-provoking, wide-ranging, and insightful exploration of the ways in which traditional political organization and governance has been both dynamized and disrupted by new technologies and the great expectations which they have helped to create." - Tim Bale, Professor and Chair in Politics, School of Politics and International Studies, Queen Mary, University of London, UK
