Summary
"Click on Democracy examines the first national election in which the Internet played a major role. The authors argue that the Internet's most profound political impact on Election 2000 was missed or underestimated. The reason: the difference the Internet made was more social than electoral, more about building political communities than about generating money and votes." "Voter turnout has dwindled over the past forty years, and today, fewer Americans are involved in civic activities. The real story of the Internet is its emergence as a community builder - under the radar of most political observers who focus on large institutions - in a society that has become politically disengaged and disenchanted." "The authors of Click on Democracy talk at length with the people who use the Internet in new and effective ways, and who regularly harness the Internet's power as a networking tool for civic action. Viewed from this bottom-up perspective, the Internet emerges as an exciting and powerful source for renewal in civic engagement."--BOOK JACKET
