Summary
"This study is about new media, young people, the crisis of democracy and political renewal. It addresses a mixture of traditional and new questions: What is the political? How do we understand politics in a 'network age'? Can we talk sensibly about the concept of generation and generational change? Does democracy have a future? This book presents an optimistic assessment of how digital media supports new and distinctive forms of politics. Four case studies are offered: one of performance art and protest in Russia, another investigates new media campaigns to defend the rights to freedom of speech and copyright in America, one enquires into indigenous art and cartoons as politics in outback Australia and the last explores new forms of student action in schools and the university"--
